My parents are visiting this weekend and for 30 Days Wild we've been visiting a few of Edinburgh's parks together.
Yesterday we visited Braidburn Valley Park
Edinburgh Botanic Gardens, where many of the rhododendrons and azaleas are still in full bloom and looking stunning in the bright sunshine
The main pond is also looking great after its recent draining and refurbishment
30 Days website, which is to follow a bee. I had seen a very small bee in the flowers, which Crafty Green Boyfriend told me was a solitary bee of some sort (there are about 200 species of solitary bees in the UK). I then found some of the holes where the bees live(you can see two in this photo, one in the soil just to the right of the cross shape and one further to the right of that)
