    Shy violet – how beautiful.

    • Violets have only just started to flower and I couldn’t resist this one flowering in the walls of a deserted black house.

    • I’m sure there is a very precise Gaelic term for the gap between stones in a blackhouse wall.

      • I am sure there is – and surprised that it is not on the tip of your tongue…

        • Not up to speed on technical vernacular architectural terms, but I am thinking about learning the plant names.
