Cruickshank Botanical Gardens

One of the museums we visited on Saturday is in the Cruickshank Botanical Gardens; it was a lovely sunny evening so we had a bit of a wander around.

The Gardens are beautiful - a mixture of carefully tended roses, wild flowers and wilderness. Lola told us she had seen a deer there just a few days earlier.

  1. These photos are lovely, but keep off the grass signs always make me sad - when the weather is like this all I want to do is lie in the grass xo

  2. It's just that one patch you're not allowed to lie on; it's full of wild flowers. You can sprawl everywhere else. :)

  3. i miss your country soooo much....

  4. Then you'll have to start saving so you can come back! These gardens are right next to that library you liked so much - next time, I will take you there. :)

  5. The name of that botanical garden makes me think of Hermione's cat Crookshanks in Harry Potter!  Aside from that, gorgeous photos as always!

  6. It's a good auld Scottish name.


Please play nice.
