Royal Botanical Gardens Edinburgh

Vacations seem to be over in an instant, but sharing pictures of my trip to Scotland here is helping me remember all the wonderful adventures (and travel mishaps) Jim and I had in June. The Royal Botanical Garden in Edinburgh was my favorite destination of the whole trip, including the gorgeous Sunday morning walk to get us there. The Rhododendron were new to me - I spotted them all over Scotland and was thrilled to find a whole section of the gardens devoted to them. Check them out below.

In addition to Scotland, I'm also really into:
1. Jenny Gordy's new Brooklyn Tweed patterns. I just purchased the Fjord pattern and I look forward to knitting it for fall.
2. Jessica Stanley's guest post on Vic's blog about basketball. I played basketball in high school, and despite lacking a talent for it, I love it so. It's so lovely to read about another girl who loves it too.
3. Frames on Miss Moss. I've always thought the frames in art galleries rival the beauty of their contents.

Lovely! I went to Edinburgh when I was 17 and I loved it so much. Actually, I loved it so much that when we got to London I wanted to go right back north!

PS - love the clean new design!

:) I love your pictures from your trip. It's so neat to see Edinburgh from your eyes!

Edinburgh and London are the only large cities I've been to in the UK and I would agree that Edinburgh is my favorite of the two. It's so walkable and scenic. I can imagine why you would want to go right back!

I'm glad you enjoy the new design!
