Where the path comes up through the trees to a grassy area there are bluebells as far as the eye can see.
Here bluebells line the path through the trees.

From the pier usual round walk, along to the Temple then up the Serpentine Walk to Upper Largo and back along the road to Lundin Links. Heard a cuckoo just at the beginning of he Serpentine Walk - the first one that I've heard for years.

Last weekend there were 12 gardens open for the Fife Diamond Garden Festival. They were all open to raise money for charity. Only managed to visit half of them. Saturday morning walked along the disused railway line and then up the track between the fields to Strathmore Cottage at Drumeldrie, which is just east of Upper Largo. A lovely cottage garden covering a wide area, with lots of interconnecting parts.
In the afternoon drove to Teasses which is on the road to Ceres from Largo. The weather had improved and things were drying out, however, still managed to get stuck entering the carpark and had to be towed up the hill.

Whatever the weather, there is always something to see - the woodland provided shelter from the drizzle and was dominated by wild garlic on both sides of the path.

According to the doctrine of signatures, the lichen was once recommended as a cure for rabies.
The mild damp weather of the West Coast of Scotland added to the fact that it is relatively unpolluted provides ideal conditions for mosses and lichens to flourish.
