The Bluebells are still in the shade here but they were out all over the place while we were in Scotland and they were ready and waiting for us when we got back to Wales too.
Our stay in Scotland was not all sunshine and sunsets. It was pretty damp the day we went to Cairnholy, but not enough to put us off the visit and, in fact, the weather probably made the experience more enjoyable.
The atmosphere in the misty hills of Galloway in SW Scotland and the fact that we were the only people there made it me feel much closer to those that had originally constructed these neolithic burial monuments.
And as the sunset faded, so the warmth and the light of the fire took over alongside the sound of evening birds, the murmur of voices and the crackle of the fire.
