Yesterday, we visited Lauriston Castle in the north west of Edinburgh.
Our main reason for visiting was to view the cherry trees, which were in full bloom in the Kyoto Friendship Garden. This garden was established in 2002 to celebrate the twinning of Kyoto and Edinburgh.
In other parts of the castle grounds, the bluebells are almost in full bloom
and the pond has a lot of both Marsh Marigold (on the island) and the invasive Skunk Cabbage (around the edges)
