Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh

By Ros @scotlandphohos

The Botanic Gardens hosts  wide variety of events throughout the year, such as workshops, outdoor performances, tours and exhibitions. Across its 4 sites in Scotland, the Botanics is home to one of the largest plant collections in the world, second only to Kew Gardens in southwest London.

I went for a wander around the Botanics yesterday with my camera. It was a wonderful sunny autumnal day. The trees are in various stages of autumnal colours.

And it’s pretty inevitable in an urban space like this, that it’s got a large population of  squirrels, which are often fairly inquisitive about the people who are wandering around the gardens. If you stop for a moment, it’s not unusual to find one or more squirrels will come scampering around to investigate you!
