Bees and Blossoms at Lauriston Castle Gardens

We had an extra day off today to add to the Easter break and inspired by this Twitter thread by @SunshineOnLeaf we visited Lauriston Castle Gardens. This is a beautiful little placein north Edinburgh which we've visited many times but oddly today was our first Spring visit there - and really this is one of the best times of year to visit as the cherry trees are in full bloom in the Kyoto Frienship Garden

The bluebells were also in full bloom in other parts of the gardens

and there's a lot of yellow and blue floral combinations

and lots of fallen cones made for lovely photo opportunities

We were very pleased to see this little solitary bee hole in one of the lawns

though the honey bees were not visibly busy at work despite the signage

Lauriston Castle holds events across the year and you can find out more on their Facebook page.
