Seeking Shade in the Dells

As regular readers of this blog know, I volunteer for the Water of Leith Conservation Trust. I patrol the Colinton Dell area of the river every week, picking litter and recording wildlife. It's a beautiful place, I love watching how it changes through the seasons.

I took this photo on Tuesday. It looks like summer!



For those of you who were disappointed that I had to cancel my guided walk of Colinton Dell, which had been scheduled to happen on Monday 27 May, you may be interested to know about a guided tour of the Dell on Sunday 26 May (tomorrow!), run by the Water of Leith Conservation Trust. Booking is essential for this one!

Good for you about the weather, here in Venice to my chagrin I have had to switch the heating on, the temperature inside the house had dropped to 17 degrees celsius, now it keeps raining after two days of angry clouds and cold wind straight from the Balkans!

How beautiful a place - the meadow and forest meet here, and the emerald green flora and foliage are spectacular. What a lovely retreat...
