Friday photo: Caribbean?

While out for a walk in sunny Perthshire yesterday, the view below made me think of the Caribbean. My fellow walkers didn’t see what I was getting at, but perhaps a well-placed palm tree or two would have convinced them. The lush green expanse (which I like to imagine being a crop of yams) was a field of potatoes.

  1. Well I kind of see what you mean, Lorna! Or perhaps the non-summer is just messing with our brains! I have not seen a crop of yams, so that’s my excuse. ๐Ÿ™‚ I notice the wheat is being got in very quickly now, and the fields ploughed up again. The season is turning!

    1. Thank you for humouring me, Jo. ๐Ÿ™‚ You might be right about the non-summer addling my brain, although yesterday was lovely here – even the wind was warm (perhaps that was what made me think of the Caribbean). I think it was about three weeks ago that I first noticed an autumnal tang in the air. The months no longer seem to stick to the timetable of my youth. August always used to be summer.

  2. LOL!!! Perthshire, potatoes and the Carribean??? I know that Scotland is the best place on earth, maybe with the exception of Cornwall, and we’ve also had a fairly sunny summer again, but I think I need to take some, of what you had, that day Lorna, it must be good stuff! ๐Ÿ™‚
    But then again, maybe it was a premonition of the weather the Carribean is suffering from at the moment, that’s much more akin to Scotland! Lol!

    1. Ha ha. All I had was good fresh countryside air, that was enough. ๐Ÿ™‚ Watching the recent reports of hurricanes in the Caribbean has certainly made me think twice about my dreams of being there. I don’t mind a bit of rain and wind but that’s taking it to extremes.

      1. Lol!!! Certainly nothing beats some good Scottish country air Lorna ๐Ÿ™‚
        I must admit, if people and animals didn’t get hurt, and lose their homes etc, I would be quite envious of everyone out in the Carribean, I love extremes in weather! But the devestation it courses, I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.
