Here comes the sun!

The weather turned fine and sunny this week, a welcome change after weeks of rain and successive storms. As well as feeling the warmth of the sun on my face, I’ve been enjoying walks with less mud underfoot.

In recent posts, I have described how Comrie’s rivers have been flooding or threatening the village, so it’s nice to be able to post some pictures of the Water of Ruchill looking positively benign. The top image captures the hefty stonework of the flood prevention embankment built after the two floods in 2012.

It is still very cold, as the overnight ice on the edge of the river and the snow caps to the hills show. But there are signs of spring, with snowdrops in full bloom and lovely, furry, ‘pussy willow’ catkins visible against the blue sky.
