For the duration of our holiday, we have been blessed with days and days of brilliant sunshine. Clear blue skies, a cooling wind, and the hot sun shining from early morning until early evening. What better way to celebrate such fabulous weather than with the sunny celandine. Shining golden petals, radiating out like sun beams. On Colonsay, the celandine grows everywhere. Luxuriously big blooms in shady areas, but also smaller, short stemmed flowers, scattered like golden stars across the close cropped grass of the craggy hillsides and machair.
