On Sunday we had a very pleasant stroll round Greenbank Gardens, which is a National Trust for Scotland (NTS) property in Clarkston, about 6 miles from the city centre. For somewhere so close to the city, it was remarkably calm and peaceful. The gardens are planted formally, but aren’t as rigid and po-faced as some formal gardens can be.

Glasgow has a bit of a gritty image and reputation, but it has so much green space that you don’t have to go too far to find beauty. This is from Queen’s Park a few weeks ago. I was playing with my new camera, and although not all the pictures came out as I’d hoped, I was pleased with this one.
