This afternoon Crafty Green Boyfriend and I visited someone in the Royal Edinburgh Hospital. The grounds of the hospital are very green and lusk at the moment, they've got wildflowers everywhere and seem to be well aware of the links between access to green spaces and good physical and mental health.
After we had walked through the hospital grounds, we walked over to Blackford Pond to see the mute swan family and their eight cygnets
Hermitage of Braid Nature Reserve. (You can find out more about the campaign to save Midmar Paddock by liking their Facebook Page or following them on Twitter).
We then continued into the Hermitage of Braid itself which is also lovely, but inexplicably I didn't take any photos, possibly because it was so muddy we were concentrating hard on not slipping and falling into the mud!
