It's Love Parks Week this week. I'd already planned today's trip to Inverleith Park with a nature writing class before I realised this but it was a nice tie in. We walked along the Water of Leith from Stockbridge Library to get to the park and then some people sat in the Sundial Garden with its formal beds of flowers and others went down to the pond. People wrote some beautiful pieces about the park area.
