Along the River to a Teddy Bears' Picnic!

We walked along the Slateford to Saughton stretch of the Water of Leith today

and into Saughton Park

where the flower beds are looking wonderful 

especially the tulips

the topiary birds are in great shape

and teddy bears have been hidden around the gardens in preparation for the teddy bear hunt which is part of this afternoon's Easter Eggstravaganza.

Saughton Park will close for a few months soon as it is going to be upgraded, the old buildings that used to be used as stables are going to be brought back into use and a new cafe created. You can read more in my blogpost from a few weeks ago.

So charming! I always think the water of Leith looks such a pretty spot too, bet there's some trout to watch in there

This is a lovely looking park. The flowers are just so colourful.
I always think Teddy Bear Picnics such fun for the young ... and the young at heart!

Wishing you a Happy Easter

All the best Jan

I am reading Ed Abbey's Desert Solitaire. He spent time there. Is he well known?

Hi Simon - yes there are trout in the Water of Leith!

Rabbits' Guy - I didn't realise Ed Abbey had spent time over here! He's not as well known here as he should be.
