Spring blooms at Rouken Glen Glasgow Scotland

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

This afternoon, I a paid a visit to Rouken Glen, south of Glasgow. This is a public park adjacent to which is a Victorian walled garden associated with a former mansion. Both in the park and garden are signs of the colours of Spring, principally crocus, daffodils and polyanthus all of which served to brighten up a rather dull afternoon.

Here are crocus in the park area.

Inside the walled garden. This is very well maintained and In can imagine will be full of colourful plants in a month or so.
