Flower Meadows at Figgate Park

Yesterday we had a lovely walk around Edinburgh's Figgate Park, which stretches along part of the Figgate Burn, which is lined with trees including this weeping willow

 The park also includes a pond, with water lilies in one corner.

The park is often a great place to see birds and at this time of year, the flower meadows and planters are looking lovely.

There were quite a few insects around too, which was nice to see as this year hasn't been generally a good year for insects. Speckled Wood Butterflies have two broods in a year and the late brood are out and about now 

Several hoverflies too, including this Long Hoverfly (thanks to Crafty Green Boyfriend for this excellent photo)

The park has lovely views across to Arthur's Seat 

And we met this lovely cat, who was initially very aloof, but eventually came over to say hello.
