Places to walk and visit

I've added a new page to my blog which is a round up of interesting places and walks we've done over the past three to four years. It might give you some inspiration for new places to visit and explore this year. I'll add more as we keep on exploring. Picture links are an entire blog about that place, the list at the bottom are blogs that feature amongst other things, places we've been.

Plant of the Week

A lovely review from Trip advisor;

“Tough plants for tough gardeners.”

Whitmuir is a destination visit. There is much to do and enjoy in lovely surroundings - and not at all far from Edinburgh. For gardeners, there is a really wonderful little garden centre called Quercus. The owners are genuinely enthusiastic and very well informed. These plants were born and bred in Scotland, nurtured to survive in our hostile Scottish climate. Everything I have bought here has thrived - I cannot say that about any other garden centre I have visited locally. Well worth a visit!
