Nearing Loch Earn in the evening we were excited to see a young pine marten cross the road. Next morning we saw two red squirrels chasing each other.
Unfortunately the weather was very windy, cold and rainy at times on most days so I did not get as far with my outdoor painting as I had hoped. Although it was June, a fairer description would be April Showers. The season was late with some daffodils and primroses still out. We did manage several walks, including to Loch an Eilein and up Cairngorm where I got good close up photos of a ptarmigan.
Cakes, birds, animals, scenic walks and painting subjects. The only thing missing was the warm weather which arrived the following week.
We don't have to go as far for the cakes in future as the owners daughter makes the same recipes for Emmelines in Abergavenny.
