Craigie Chimney Pots

The skies have been blue grey recently which contrasts nicely with the terracotta and biscuit colours of chimney stacks in Perth. These photos are of just some of the chimneys in one street in the Craigie area of Perth. They are all different!

Glenearn Road Cherry Tree Blossom

In the past lots of cherry blossom trees have been planted in the Glenearn Road area of Perth. They come into bloom in late April and for a short few days are glorious – but difficult to photograph as they are surrounded by cars, buildings and road signs! They have done well this year.

April 2021

April was a month of bright blue skies, clouds, showers and rainbows. Buds and blossoms bloomed. We particularly enjoyed walks by the River Tay as we could see through the bare tree branches to the river banks.

Perth in powder snow

In the middle of February we had a cold spell and 15 centimetres of snow, unusually feather light powder snow, which covered everything. Then the weather remained freezing and still so the delicate decoration remained for a couple of days. Perth looked so picturesque bathed in gentle winter sunshine.

Autumn continued, the first snows appeared on the mountains, geese flew south but the land remained green – the greenest November I can remember.

September 2020

September was a green and golden month with farmers rushing to do their harvests in between bouts of heavy rain. The grass looked unnaturally green. A highlight was a spitfire aircraft fly by to thank the NHS for their work.

June 2020

There were some glorious skies this month – colours and unusual cloud patterns. For once there was a nice sunset at the solstice on the 20th June.
