For a year and a half now I have lived at the highest point on an old bog road overlooking a vast expanse of breath-giving landscape. I can see seven lakes from here, distant mountains a hundred miles away and swathes of deer inhabited forest. June brings the abundant flowering of the Rhododendron, introduced by Victorians to ornamental gardens and now run wild and free. Its violet blooms light up the land, in perfect harmony with the blue lakes and mountains, forest greens and the russet bogland golds.
