275/365 Queen Victoria & Scottish Heather



275/365 Queen Victoria & Scottish Heather

"The gorgeous bright October,
Then when brackens are changed
And heather blooms are faded,
And amid russet of heather and fern. 
Green trees are bonnie."
Arthur Hugh Cough (devoted assistant to Florence Nightingale

Note:  Queen Victoria quotes these words in her journal,  "Life in the Highlands."
