20170423 – Dawyck Botanic Garden

We Talk to The Trees

After our visit to the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh we travelled to Stobo and Dawyck Botanic Garden.  As their web site states:

“Dawyck is truly one of the world’s finest arboreta. Seasonal displays of abundant exotic and native plants provide a breathtaking backdrop of colour throughout the year. The Garden also offers an award-winning visitor centre.”

Visit Scotland has this to say on its site “Dawyck Botanic Garden is home to one of Scotland’s finest tree collections including some of Britain’s oldest and tallest trees.  The 65-acre five star Garden offers woodland and burnside walks and is renowned for its seasonal displays of snowdrops, bluebells, Himalayan poppies, rhododendrons, azaleas and autumn colour”.

With that in mind we went on the David Douglas trail:

20170402 – Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

Spring  Sprung – Flowers Bloomed

I like photography and try various aspects of the hobby.  I’m better at some aspects than others.  I’m not a people photographer, street photographer I am not, I prefer landscapes, animals, birds and plants.  We visit the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh at least twice a year.  My one problem is I forget the name of the plants.
