The stunning Rock Garden at the Royal Botanical Gardens Edinburgh, I am lucky to have this place in walking distance from my home.
This weekend my wife and I had the house to ourselves as our kids, now 10 years old went to their Aunties for a couple of days.
We spent Sunday walking around Stockbridge, visiting the second hand shops and a walk through the Botanical Gardens. I had a lovely hour sitting by the rock garden making this sketch of the beautifully kept banks of colour and fragrance.
What a blessing to have a little time to sit and relax with my pens and watercolours, focusing in on the details and the wonder of nature in full bloom.
Remember if visiting the Royal Botanical Gardens Edinburgh that you currently have to pre book your free visit.
