Oh, I’ll tak’ ye on the road again when the yellow’s on the broom

It's becoming that time again in Washington State, when the Scotch Broom starts to flower, and many people incorrectly blame their allergies on the "Broom Bloom", (most likely it's the tremendous amount of Douglas Fir pollen that pervades the area that causes the allergies, and not the Broom.)

However, I have found a nice event, held along the east coast of Scotland, in Inverbervie, Aberdeenshire, about halfway between Aberdeen, and Arbroath (to the south), that celebrates the broom, and the coming of Spring with a Music and Arts festival.  I'd love to attend, and do plan to make it someday.  I also plan to take my beautiful wife to the truly romantic and scenic Isle of Mull, and stay at the Mish-Nish in Tobermory some day (hopefully in the next few years) for the folk and traditional music festival.
