I've been out and about a lot over the past few days and haven't had the chance to update this blog with everything!
I lead a guided walk on Thursday, walking round North Merchiston Cemetery then across to the canal and following the canal to the Re-union Canal boat where we all had a nice cup of tea and a chat! I arrived early in the cemetery and took some photos.
This magnificent lime tree is a distinctive feature of the cemetery
and the Wych Elms are already in fruit
Later that day I spent some time in Crafty Green Boyfriend's mother's garden
Crafty Green Boyfriend is very keen on the idea of No Mow May and is hoping that his brother will continue to be too busy to remember to mow the grass!
There seem to be more Wild Strawberries in bloom than ever
Atticus the neighbour's cat spent time in the garden with me
Today I went to an event about Flax growing, part of Our Linen Stories which is a project of Journeys in Design. Journeys in Design explores design, well-being and sustainable futures. The event took place in Jack Tamson's Gairden, a community garden on the shores of Duddingston Loch
close to Arthur's Seat.
While in the area, I popped into Duddingston Kirkyard (where I did a wildlife survey last year as part of my work surveying the cemeteries and kirkyards of the city). It's a lovely historical kirkyard
with a wonderful view onto Duddingston Loch
