Yesterday we had a lovely visit to Edinburgh Botanic Gardens. It was another sunny autumnal day and the gardens looked lovely. We were delighted to meet this grey squirrel who seemed happy to pose for the camera
and this one who was too busy to even look at the camera
Despite autumn being here already, there are still plenty of hoverflies visiting the flowers
The gardens have several rowan trees, of different species, which have different coloured berries
The Botanics cafe is now open again, but only drinks and basic cold snacks for take away or outdoor eating. Currently, to allow for visitor numbers to be managed to allow for better social distancing, Edinburgh Botanic Gardens have an online advance booking system. We were able to book a time slot with just a couple of hours notice though, so you can still be fairly spontaneous!
We also had a walk through Inverleith Park where the mute swans were resting by the pond
