We were able this morning to book a time slot for visiting Edinburgh Botanic Gardens this lunchtime! (Due to COVID the gardens are only admitting a limited number of people, you can book a time slot here). Once you are in the gardens you can stay as long as you like!
The gardens looked beautiful in the late autumn sunshine
The silver birch trees look particularly pretty in the low sunlight
Many of the birch trees have witches brooms in them, these are caused either by a parasitic wasp or a virus.
