Spring on the mountain
Up on the slopes of the mountain spring has sprung. The cuckoo has been at it for almost a month now; the skylarks and swallows are back in residence; and the bracken is beginning to push up those strange curled stalks......... And that wonderful fresh yellow-green colour is beginning to appear on the bilberry patches on the highest slopes, amongst the rocky outcrops.
I took this photo the other day -- Earth Goddess snoozing quietly on the far horizon.
