From Saughton Park to Roseburn Park along the Water of Leith
After the early morning haar (see mist) lifted, we were treated to wonderful blue skies and sunshine, though with a definite autumnal chill to the air. We started today's walk at Saughton Park, one of several parks that line the Water of Leith
There were wonderful spiders webs everywhere
The autumn colours are beautiful this year, and most trees still have a lot of their leaves, as Edinburgh hasn't been as windy as normal so far this autumn
We walked along the river to Roseburn Park
where we were astonished by the number of shield bugs we saw (how many can you find in the photo below? Click on it for a bigger view!)
most if not all of which were hawthorn shield bugs, despite being seen on whitebeam.
We liked the new ganes tables that have been set up in Roseburn Park, it would have been a lovely day for an outdoor game of chess if we'd had our chess set with us! You can see my photo of the table here!
