Scenes from the local area

 We had a quick lunchtime walk round Saughton Park yesterday. It's a lovely park that sits alongside the Water of Leith. The skeleton trees looked lovely in the low winter light.

Today we popped into North Merchiston Cemetery at lunchtime and were very impressed by these Velvet Shank fungi! 

 North Merchiston Cemetery shares a boundary wall with Gorgie City Farm, which is sadly set to close a week on Monday. Hopefully someone can step in to save this wonderful place, which has offered educational and practical activities for children and young people to learn about farming and nature.
