It was Crafty Green Boyfriend's birthday today, so we took the day off and had a lovely walk round Corstorphine Hill. There's a steep climb to start with, but the rosebay willowherb looks lovely in the winter sunshine
There are lots of trees around the hill and their winter skeletons are beautiful against the sky
The gorse is in bloom, adding a lovely splash of colour to the scene
We continued into the wooded part of the hill and were delighted to see a jay in these birch trees.
