Today was summer. Yes, while everyone south is frying in the excessive heat, we in Shetland have had no summer until today. It was very nice (max 17 C or 63 F) and about as hot as I like to go.
The wild flowers are glorious and everywhere.
The air has a lovely sweet smell to it. This is the clover in full bloom.
The Shetland Bumblebees (yes, we have our very own special species with a gorgeous orange bottom) – were out in force when I was walking the dogs this afternoon. They adore the flowers.
It really was a glorious day. Tomorrow we move on to Autumn, I think. And so that was our Shetland Summer. It was brief. Thank you very much.
