Summer flowers and fruit

June and July are wonderful months in Scotland. It’s warm but not too warm. The countryside is green and covered in wild flowers. And you can pick wild fruit wherever you go! This is a photo of the girls frolicking (there’s really no other word for it) in a field of oxeye daisies.

We have so many cherry trees here that I’m naming Crieff 2020’s International Cherry Town. Just a few steps from our front door you can help yourself to as many cherries as you like.

We also have wild raspberries, redcurrants, white currants and gooseberries.

One of our favourite activities is picking strawberries and raspberries at our local “Pick Your Own” fruit farm. And then making ice cream, or, this time, Strawberry Pavlova!
