Spring blooms at Greenbank

Spring blooms at Greenbank, near Glasgow

This evening, I am posting images of Spring which I took yesterday at Greenbank Gardens near Glasgow, Scotland. I could not make a blog post yesterday due to technical problems, possibly due to the server. 

Yesterday, I availed of the mild spring weather and cycled round to historic Greenbank House which dates from the 18th century. Of equal significance is the garden which has a high reputation and is well maintained. After the horrors of the arctic winter, blooms, blossoms and flowers are beginning to emerge and which I have endeavoured to capture in the selection of images below. Snowdrops and various coloured crocus are in abundance.

Elsewhere today, I have been preoccupied with tour related matters, in particular:

  • A small group of about 12 who wish to tour Scotland and England.
  • Detailed work on the itinerary for a self-drive tour of Scotland England.

Other enquiries have come in which I will respond to tomorrow.
