Kilpatrick Muir Flora, walk this afternoon, overcast warm with a breeze. Quite a lot of ringlets fluttering.

A tiny thought on the current uk news. It worries me they way politicians use Twitter to post letters of resignation & the like. Trusting Twitter with something so important seems like a mistake. Surly they should post somewhere they control & forward to Twitter
