Today I had the pleasure of touring Edinburgh's Royal Botanical Gardens. You say February in Scotland can't be that exciting in a botanical garden; I say-- think again. I can only imagine how lovely the garden will be in a few months; signs of spring were at every turn. Whether it be the delicate snowdrops in bloom or the bulbs just emerging or perhaps the early blooming rhododendrons just starting to show color, if you take a close look, you know that spring is on her way.
I must confess; however, the real showstoppers lived in the glass houses. As we toured these vast collections, we observed plants from around the globe and what an experience it was. I hope you enjoy a few of the highlights.
