When I flew into Scotland in 2010 I flew in over snow capped mountains ~
People always say…
“The temperature must be a bit of a shock to the system isn’t it coming from the end of a summer in Australia?”
But of course quickly swapping over sandles and short sleeved shirts to wooly tights and boots, with layers of long sleeved garments topped with waistcoats and scarves is actually quite an entertaining novelty. Such a bevy of coloured layers to accomodate the cooler climes!
The effort of the extra dressing is more than rewarded by the seasonal flowers that are all the more special knowing you’re only going to see them for a few treasured weeks each year ~
I was greeted by mounds of beautiful snowdrops and crocuses (should that be croci plural?)
