Mainly about the wild flowers of Fife

Drumcarrow hill

Or Drumcarro craig as Charles Howie knew it.

It was sunny and much, much less windy and a good day to be out there. Very cold though – some of the mosses were frozen solid, but at least this helped with the mud. A drip had encased these grasses in ice.

I found a single primrose, but it wasn’t open yet so no picture. But there was a wild thyme plant in flower, a very welcome sight.

The Polytrichum piliferum added colour, with its red ‘flowers’.

Even when I don’t know what they are (i.e. most of the time), I do love the way mosses look.

The views from the top were wonderful.



I also took a picture of Cassindonald bog completely flooded.

Skylarks were singing. I lasted about an hour and a half before the cold wind got too much.
