In Perth there are allotments on Moncreiffe island in the middle of the Tay. At the end of July they had an open day complete with live music and produce sales. So interesting to see what everyone has done with their space.

The Queen’s platinum jubilee weekend was an unusual event and on 2nd June we went to see the lighting of the jubilee beacon by the river Tay. It was a peaceful, tranquil evening with low key ceremony.

We had a lovely walk through fields by the Tay at Newburgh on a beautiful blue sky day. It looked good enough to swim but was just above freezing!

We finally went to visit Drumderg wind farm which we see from the top of the hill in our local park in Perth. It was a day of glorious blue skies with the snow clad high peaks gleaming in the background. Nice to see cattle on the farm too.
