This morning, with sun shining and temperature around 20C  I went off to visit another local garden, namely at House for Art Lover. The House was completed in the 1990s from an original design by famous Glaswegian architect and designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh dating back to the early part of the 20th century.  The House is built on the site of a former Victorian mansion which featured a walled garden, typical of the period, That walled garden is now immaculately maintained and, apart from the colourful display of plants and flowers, is known for sweet peas.

Atmosphere here this morning was similar to that at Greenbank yesterday, i.e.a haven of serenity enjoyed by just a handful of folks in the early summer sunshine. Surprisingly, admission is free. The following images cover a selection of some of the more colourful flowers in evidence.
