Today in Glasgow proved extremely wet.

Greenbank Garden

 From time to time I dip and out of nearby Greenbank Garden to monitor the changing seasons by way of photographing the plants and foliage. The heavy rain deterred visitors so I had the luxury of the garden to myself. With aid of a golf umbrella I obtained some reasonable images with the dark and rainy background providing an added dimension by way of colour contrasts.

Very briefly, Greenbank House and Garden date from the 1760s  and have experienced only minor, cosmetic changes since inception. The property is now owned by Scotland’s National Trust.

Below are the best images selected from my visit. They include Anemone, Clematis, Bergenia, Phlox, Fuchsia, Dahlias and many more.  There are also a few fungi prospering on a decaying tree stump in the damp and wet conditions which makes for an interesting shot.
