Sunshine, east of Leith

We have had some ferocious weather this winter, and I am really tired of it now.  For me, the relentless, very strong winds have been the most tiresome feature.  Roll on Spring.  There are signs.  Snowdrops, a few wispy crocuses spotted today, and also a handful of aconites.  

However, the sun has shone today.  A beautiful blue day, light winds, and this afternoon we even sat in a sheltered corner of the garden for a little while.  I left my beloved old cat, Pippi, enjoying the almost-warm sun, and the dogs and I drove over to Athelstaneford, for a walk.  It's a pretty little village, with wonderful views north to Fife, east to North Berwick and out to sea, south to the Lammermuir Hills, and west to the Garleton Hills.  I find it an uplifting place to be, and we had a really great walk along grassy field margins.  My favourite kind of walking.
