We wandered through the Meadows in Edinburgh today admiring the crocuses, which are at their best. Crafty Green Boyfriend wasn't the only person with a camera crouching in front of fields of flowers. It's nice to see that people make the effort to come out to enjoy nature's displays. Not only the crocuses either, there were a lot of redwings around (see Crafty Green Boyfriend's photo below), they were congregating on the edge of a football game and flew up into the trees whenever the players came too close and then down onto the field again when the action moved away. They'll be thinking of leaving the country again soon. It was nice to see them here in such numbers today and and also yesterday, the Meadows is traditionally a good place to see redwings in Edinburgh but I hadn't had much luck over the past couple of years.
