Easter Monday Botanics: Part 1

Submitted by Cailean on Mon, 04/17/2017 - 20:46

Following on from a conversation on Easter Sunday about nice places to walk nearby, I had it in mind to explore the Botanical Gardens at the top of Byres Road. I feel I barely scratched the surface, but it was a refreshing environment and plenty to see.

The famous Kibble Palace glass houses.

Isn't there a lyric in a song about giving someone a rose garden?
