Just a quick post to let you know that I have not abandoned my blog :-) The temptation was there though. It is such a delight to have more time on your hands, to do those things you always want to do, but you decide against. Having a garden that needs a lot of attention and a blog you have to keep up and take photo's for, can sometimes be a burden. It helps to distance oneself from it all now and then and relax. That's exactly what I did.
So, I am back. With renewed energy and inspiration. The girls and I had a wonderful time. We fell in love with Edinburgh. It's the combination of it's rich heritage and history, the amazing architecture, interesting places to visit and nature on it's doorstep. According to the girls, it's hip and classy too.
We walked the streets of New Town, Old Town, Stockbridge and Dean Village. Visited the Scottish national library, the Georgian house and many other places of interest. We made some beautiful walks along the river Dean to the botanical gardens, and one to the top of Arthur's seat, where we admired the view. We also did some vintage shopping at Armstrong & sons. Never seen a collection of vintage clothes as large as theirs before.
We did not want to leave.....There is so much more to discover. We will definitely be back!
Hope you had a lovely holiday as well? If you haven't been yet or will stay at home, have a good time.
Some photo's were taken with my mobile phone, hence the difference in quality.
