18.6C with good sunny spells but we had a bit of patchy rain earlier.The heather moors are just about at peak flowering so a good time to get up there if anyone has a mind to see it. The individual tiny flowers open over a period of about 6 weeks so the exact best period varies.Later on if it's rainy the older flowers go brown and start to dilute the purple.
Lovely up here in Edinburgh, fresh and clear with a soft SW wind and well defined cumulus against a bright blue sky, warm too at 21 C already
