Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh


This is the view today from the footpath that runs in front of the Scottish National Gallery. It’s a viewpoint I see regularly because it’s one of the most direct routes from Princes Street in the middle of Edinburgh to where I live – about 20 minutes walk from the city centre.

Today the person who cuts the grass had excelled him/her-self. Just look at those stripes. And just a few weeks ago the whole area was devoid of grass – ready for the turf to be laid.

    1. I recommend it – it’s well worth exploring. We moved here about four years ago – how time flies. It’s small for a capital with just 450,000 people but there are so many different areas I still keep new places. Of course, it is manic during the festival!

        1. No I haven’t been to Spain, but it’s been on my to do list for a few years now. It won’t be this year – we have all our holidays organised already. Maybe next year… I really want to visit the Alhambra.


  1. With all that wet, it’s so blasted green. Pops right out at you. Loving the color contrast with that big , fat greyness rollin’ in. Super shot.


    1. Thanks for the comment – that’s a great line – ‘a plaid in the grass’ 🙂

      I remember when one saw those back-and-forth stripes everywhere, before it became too ‘inefficient’ to go back and forth. I guess Princes Street Gardens merits VIP treatment – or perhaps it was an errant worker ignoring the efficiency rules…
