I’ve been in Edinburgh for about 4 weeks, staying with friends and helping with some DIY. I’m writing this on the train back to Glasgow. It’s 11:45am and there’s a guy drinking a can of Tennant’s opposite; Monday mornings can be tough for some.

Heading home for a night to pack for the next stage of my travels. I’ll be heading up to Jacqui’s Herbalist’s Garden near Aberfeldy.

Dearest sister #1 has requested some photographs of chilly Edinburgh — I’m only too happy to oblige. It’s well known that Edinburgh has Wonderful Architecture; grandiose, historical and evocative. Hopefully these images capture some of that spirit…

Architectural highlights of Edinburgh in January 2006

Last Friday I visited Redhall Walled Gardens. Redhall is a beautiful, peaceful spot with lots of funky features: a woodhenge, an iron-age hut, a Zen garden. They sell plants, compost and leaf mulch, and I recommend anyone in Edinburgh to take a wander down there to check it out.

we are capable of doing
we would quite literally
astound ourselves’
