Winter Loosens its Grip

Life becomes very confusing when the seasons really don't seem to know what they're doing.  After two days of pure winter, with snow, hail, sleet and night-time temperatures below 2C, the sun came out this morning and, despite warnings of hail showers and thunder, remained firmly out all day.

Winter is still visible along the horizon in this picture which looks from Swordle towards Ockle and on to the mountains of Moidart, while....

....this view looks down from the road to Bay Cottage at Swordle.  In this picture, the fields in the foreground are on Ardnamurchan Estate land, where the first lambs are beginning to appear.  They must have had a fairly bitter introduction to life, but the forecast for their next few days is good.
