There are certain times of the year when the serendipitous colour combinations of wild-flowers lift the spirit. This summer, the castle's terrace was blessed by the "blue and gold" of the Speedwell and the Buttercup. I provide this photograph in the hope, that the memory of summer will brace you against the onslaught of winter. It is no accident, methinks, that one of the most charming hostelries in Dundee is "The Speedwell", The gleaming brass and porcelain Victorian "facilities" there, are themselves worth the price of admission alone.
