The sun was shining and the day was young, so we hopped on a bus and went to the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.
We’ve been before – several times – but yesterday we found more areas in which to wander that we had not seen before.
The place is much bigger than we had thought, and reading the information on the RHSE website, I see that it covers about 70 acres (30 hectares).
That’s pretty good and especially so since the garden is just one mile north of the city centre.
The Place Was Humming
The garden was humming with bees, including these that Tamara spotted on some thistles.
The bees in the photo here hold the record no only for the number of bees on one thistle head but also for arranging themselves so well for their photo.
