Good Afternoon, Yesterday Stuart and I decided to go visit Glendoick Gardens as this is the best time of the year as they specialise in Rhododendrons and cultivate their own. We arrived in good time to spent the morning and went in to the Garden Centre to get our tickets as instructed only to be told the gardens are only open Monday to Friday April/May. What a shame not opening on a Saturday when all the poor people that work would be visiting (Only joking) anyway that put paid to my bright idea for the day. Don't have many nowadays. We did the usual and went to the coffee shop for a coffee and a scone. I then had another thought gee my brain was working overtime "what about we go to Dundee as we are nearly there anyway and go to the Botanic Gardens". Stu thought that was a good idea so after a short walk round the garden centre bought a birthday present for Lisa and a deciduous Azalea for our garden we set off for Dundee. (Home City). It was very bright and sunny when we arrived and we set off round the gardens. We had intended to come earlier this spring to see the Magnolias and the Camellias but had not gotten round to it with one thing or another in our busy lives LOL. Most of the Magnolias and camellias were past their best but the Rhododendrons were looking very good as you will see from the pictures. We were caught in a very heavy shower so we stood under one of the magnificent trees till it eased but it came on even heavier, I did have my small brolly in my bag but its not much use for two people and did not have a coat on silly me trusting the weather you would think at my age I would have learned something, however time for another coffee and a bacon roll till it went off. Sun out again so off we went again. The Gardens have become a very popular spot for taking wedding photographs there were 5 wedding while we were there lots of lovely brides and all those kilties. We continued now the sun was shining again and then visited the huge glasshouses. Stuart then had a treat as there was a painting exhibition on in the visitors centre so we had a nice walk round there and had a chat to one of the artists. All in all a grand day out enjoyed very much by both of us. Hope you enjoy the pictures I certainly enjoyed taking them. Have a restful Sunday. Love
Thank you Sara for the sig.
