The weekend was largely hot and sunny, which was in complete contrast to the largely cold spring we've had so far. I visited my Dad in suburban Manchester. It was lovely to visit and we spent lots of time in the garden
The grape hyacinths are looking lovely
The orange tip butterflies didn't stop for photos but they enjoyed the cowslips as much as we did
By the time I got the train back to Edinburgh though, the clouds had returned and the temperature had dropped. The train journey is beautiful though, passing through the Lake District and Lanarkshire, where most of the fields are full of sheep with their baby lambs.
