Do we believe in the country folklore about predicting the weather,especially the winter ahead.I'm told we have another "bumper heather" this year,and after taking visitors up to Glen Shee yesterday,it's clear to see we do indeed have a bumper crop this year.Noticed a lot of Fieldfares up Glen Esk as well , feeding on the bumper crop of Rowan.Is this the harbinger of a bad winter or just a load of old wifeys tales?


A bumper crop of fruit in the autumn usually means it has been a good spring for pollination as there have been plenty of insects about. I have noticed that the heather is blooming early this year as are a few other autumn plants, I put that down to a cool wet summer with less sun.

I think the country as a whole will see a lot of snow this winter with a really cold spell at the beginning of the year with low temperatures. Spring should be warmer too next year.
Don't worry, be happy.

I would say the best chance of a fish would be just behind the white water in that road pic :P
