It's been lovely weather here. It was sunny when we had coffee in John Lewis yesterday.
It was still sunny as we drove up to have lunch with Son today.
The sun shone on Gloagburn Farm as we ate.
We then climbed Moncreiffe Hill, where there are Pictish hill forts. This isn't one. It's just some posts which have been placed at the foot of the hill to give one a Pictish feeling as one reads the information boards.
Son posed Pictishly, though didn't actually cover himself with paint, which miight have been more authentic (or might not).
This, apparently, is the site of a Pictish hill fort from the Late Iron Age or Early Mediaeval period. You get views in all directions so could see the enemy approaching, though we weren't quite sure what you'd do about it. There didn't seem anywhere much to hide.
But everything looked very peaceful today.
I've now sewn my tumblers together in rows and - since taking the picture - have joined three rows together. There was a tiny bit of unpicking involved, but not too much. I know it's all very simple but it's quite satisfying. Maybe I'll try something more complicated next time (or maybe I won't).
