Green light

Apologies for my absence from the City Daily Photo Blogs for the last few days. Work got a bit on top of me, and I’ve probably only taken about 2 pictures in the last month. Work’s still on top of me, but I need some procrastination time so I’m lining up a few more pictures for this week 🙂

This weird and wonderful thing looks like it could be from a Dr Who set, but is in fact one of the many futuristic lights which light up (and presumably heat up) the Kibble Palace glasshouse at the Botanic Gardens.

Staying in the Botanic Gardens, here’s yet another picture of the giant ferns in the Kibble Palace.

Through the round window

This is looking up at the domed window of the Kibble Palace in the Botanic Gardens (the blue is the sky – this was taken in May, it would be a very different picture if I’d taken it this week!).

I’m offline again for a few days, but have lined up a few pictures.

Kibble Palace

This view of the Kibble Palace in the Botanic Gardens was taken nearly 2 months ago – I’m quite sure the trees in the background have plenty more leaves now. I don’t think I’ll ever get fed up of taking pictures here, the building is so beautiful before you get anywhere near the plants!

Tropicana

This is also taken from the Kibble Palace. I love that whatever the weather (or probably more accurate for here, Weather-with-a-capital-W), even in Glasgow there is a touch of the tropical.

Katya is currently showing photos from the Botanic Gardens in Buffalo, and a lot of her glasshouse ones are reminding me of Glasgow’s Botanics. So here’s a picture from the Kibble Palace glasshouse to accompany the photos from the other side of the Pond. 🙂

Here’s another fern, brand new and still unfolding. I’m pleased with this – one of my macro shots that actually worked! 😀

This fern is from the Kibble Palace. I love the deep green and the patterns of the leaves.

This is from the entrance to the Kibble Palace in the Botanic Gardens. You might just be able to make out one or two of the goldfish.

Kibble Palace in the snow

Staying in the Botanic Gardens, here’s the Kibble Palace glasshouse looking lovely in the snow.

Happy Valentine’s Day! It turns out we couldn’t go away for the weekend after all, as our car’s not so well (nothing too serious, but we need to get the problem sorted out) and it was too late to get a train ticket that didn’t cost a fortune. We shall just have to have a romantic time in Glasgow instead 🙂
