Springtime around Loch Awe

With sunshine this morning and a lovely 10oC, spring colour will be with us soon.  For now we still have bare wintery colours, but the birds are singing and you can feel the energy of spring.  (11th March 2018)

Snow drops and mini daffs in tubs at Blarghour (11th March 2018)

This is early March snowdrops are flowering and ice still hangs from the ‘Wee’ Waterfall at Blarghour after the cold blast brought by the ‘Beast from the East’.  Here in Argyll we had biting cold winds to endure but were very lucky to escape the blanket of snow which covered most of the UK.
