Corstorphine Hill We had a lovely walk round Corstorphine Hill at lunchtime. The weather was hot, which was a bit of a shock since it was cold only two days ago!Luckily there are plenty of trees offering shade on large areas of the hill.

Still on the theme of Trees, I'm delighted that my poem Family Tree is up on Snake Oil Cure today! You can read it here. (Today, that link takes you directly to my poem, but it looks as though, from tomorrow onwards, you may need to scroll down to reach my poem). Snake Oil Cure are currently specifically looking for stories, poetry and art about trees, so if you have anything suitable, send it to them! Details on the submissions page of the Snake Oil Cure website.
On a slightly different theme, I'm delighted that two of my haiku are included in the Sketchbook haiku thread on the theme of brides and weddings. More haiku are being added all the time, so be sure to check back or send your own in (details on the Sketchbook website).
