I had to work to-day, until 1400. So, I went for a walk by the canal, which is on my way home. I didn't want to waste a second of a gorgeous day by going home to get changed.
It was great to feel the wind in my hair, and the sun on my face. Oh, and I got to play with my new lens. 😃
Wild Hyacinth - Fuath-mhuc - Hyacinthoides non-scripta
It is towards the end of the season for Hyacinths, but they still provide a splash of colour.
There were many more wildflowers along the canal banks, because the grass hasn't been cut for weeks (possibly not at all, this year). This is due to the coronavirus Lockdown. See, every cloud has a silver lining. Consequently, I saw, and heard, many happy bumblebees to-day.
I actually think the verges look nicer, too. They are more natural, rather than manicured.
I'm off to the beach, to-morrow.
@fitheach I want to go to there.
It might be a while yet before Lockdown is lifted, and tourism can start again.
@fitheach Wow good job ! you're not like the otters :)
@fitheach Now that could be Austria or Norway.
Certain things about the building screams out Scotland, though. For instance, I've not come across continental countries that have grey slate covered roofs.
@fitheach Ha, I didn’t zoom in. Now you mention it, that telefon box is another giveaway 😀
... and slightly out of sight is the red post box, another giveaway, and possibly a cliché.
@fitheach The smallest is the cutest ⚓️
I don't know, can big ever be cute?
Even the large boat wasn't that big. I do sometimes see boats on the canal which have QE2 dimensions, but not at the present time, of course.
