We were fortunate over the spring and summer, here in the far north of Scotland. By all accounts it was the longest period of great weather since the 1950s. We took a few drives, had mostly clear weather for the friends who came to visit, and marveled at the long, dry, sunshine-filled days. It was glorious!
Seasons change as they do, and our good run of weather is over for the year. This afternoon it's windy, with sleet, rain and hail rattling against the windows; in other words, your typical Highland autumn day. The landscape is changing, and while I miss the brilliant foliage of my Pennsylvania roots, there are some places not too far from here which put on a decent show, at least until the gales blow the leaves from the trees. That never takes long, and by now many of the trees are bare.
