Finally it feels like summer has arrived. Last winter was long, the spring was brief, but the summer brings hope of new colours and patterns in the landscape around Fife. These pictures were taken during a walk around the Hill of Tarvit Estate. This is a National Trust for Scotland property near to Cupar. It particularly interests me because the estate was bought in 1904 by Frederick Bower Sharp, who was a wealthy jute mill owner from Dundee.
