That last one was taken with a colour saturation setting, but the colours really are almost that vivid. Also, don't you love how much weather can happen in one glen in one morning? That's crazy Scotland for you in the summer.
Have thrown my back out, so no more words. I am groaning and making chicken soup.
Quickest cheatiest chicken soup:
Finely chop half an onion and two small leeks; simmer in stock or water with a tablespoon of Marigold bouillon. After ten minutes, add a handful of shredded watercress and baby spinach. Simmer for five more minutes. Throw in a poached chicken breast, chopped or shredded. I sometimes put in a bit of chilli for zing. Adjust seasoning. That's IT. It will not quite cure your poor back should it go into spasm, but it will make you comforted and almost whole.
You know I don't tell you anything, because there is nothing more annoying than people telling you what to do, but do go to Scotland on your holiday if you want more beauty than one mind can bear. Do not go if you want blatant sunshine. There will be weather over the mountains.
Stopping now as feeling most peculiar.
