Nature Friday: grass and ass...

I've been scanning through the photos of my walks in the countryside over the past week or so, and could not help but notice a common theme. 

Almost all feature our lovely Scottish landscape framing a small but perfectly former terrier derrière. 

We can attribute the photographer's failure to keep up with me to the fact that she has been recovering from a sprained ankle, and her forward motion is still a tad tentative on rough ground or downhill. 

And whilst readers of taste and discrimination will recognise my compact, muscular rear end as a true wonder of nature, Gail is insistent that it is not in and of itself suitable material to front up (or should that be back up?) a Nature Friday post. 

She suggests that my friends might rather be interested in this pretty little flower, which she spotted in a damp area beside the path on Scolty Hill on Wednesday and, after consulting her wildflower book, identified as Grass of Parnassus. (Oddly named, as it is no way actually a grass).

You'll be pleased to hear that I did eventually stop and wait for Gail to catch up after she had finished with her botanising.

Happy Nature Friday! And remember, the other posts in the LLB Gang's blog hop are always well worth a read.

    Mind you, that is one very pretty flower and it's kind of Gail to tell us about it.
