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.

A bit of colour after the last two B&W shots – these lovely narcissi brightened up University Gardens, just outside the English Lit department.

The crocuses are out in Queen’s Park, and there are daffs emerging too, so in the next couple of weeks it should be a riot of yellow. I was really pleased with this picture, the contrast of the dead winter leaves and the new spring life 🙂
