One of those days

Well this morning the whole of the National Scenic Area was white over, not with snow but hailstones. However it also looked fabulous in every shade of green and gold, before it started to melt a little.

I have cleared all of the decked areas of hailstones but we now have hhailstones and rain !!

The decking is now completely clear of hailstones and  I can see Iona and sunshine in the distance and I think we will get sun here in about 20 minutes.


You see how varied these Islands that bob in the Atlantic can be, in landscape and climate, but it does make life very interesting, like its another world here.


Yes here it is now, blazing sun everywhere I look now and Benmore entirely white because it will retain the hailstones for longer because it reaches into the sky and colder air.
