Day Tripping (3) – Culzean garden

Because the west of Scotland benefits from the Gulf Stream, you quite often find exotic plants that you wouldn’t expect this far north. This is the garden on one side of Culzean Castle.

Pronunciation. Cullayne (emphasis on the 2nd syllable). I’m sure the Scots will be on board soon to add any nuances I’ve missed. But miss out the z for a start πŸ™‚

    Beautiful photo of a beautiful place. I’ve read of how the Gulf Stream influences countries in your area…this is a prime example.

    I’m really enjoying this series of photos. Palm trees and amazing stone work.

  3. I’ve never yet been to Culzean, thanks for showing it and the prononciation guide!

    So very beautiful! Seeing such foliage in northern climes seems like a visual oxymoron! I think Scotland must be very much like the states of Washington and Oregon in the US, where the weather is much kinder than our northeastern seaboard!

    A lovely photo!
