Yesterday we had a lovely walk round one of our favourite places, Edinburgh's Arthur's Seat.
Yarrow is still in bloom, in both the usual white
and a very pretty pink variety
Also in bloom were Vipers Bugloss
and Bird's Foot Trefoil
It's lovely to see so many flowers in bloom at the end of summer.
Yesterday's weather was dull and windy, but mostly dry. The rain has moved in today! I hope it lasts for a while, as we've had a very dry summer and really need the rain.
Our summer of drought is a sign of climate change, though a relatively benign one compared to the boiling temperatures and forest fires in many parts of the world and the devastating floods in Pakistan, where 33 million people have lost their homes.
