If you work near a park then having lunch in that park is one of the easiest ways of fitting a bit of nature into your day.
When I worked in the centre of Edinburgh I would have lunch every day (unless it rained) in Princes Street Gardens. Yes even in winter! It's something I still do, if I happen to be in that part of town at lunchtime. So for today's challenge for 30 Days Wild, I visited Princes Street Gardens.
Princes Street Gardens is in the centre of Edinburgh and has a fascinating history. It is below street level and has great views of Edinburgh Castle
Just along the road from Princes Street Gardens is the much smaller Atholl Cerscent Garden. It's nice to see the council here adopting a relaxed policy to mowing the grass so that the buttercups and other wild flowers can grow and provide food for bees and other insects.
How do you spend your lunchtime?
