This morning I collected guests from Paisley hotel and then proceeded as follows:

First to Greenbank Garden, south of Glasgow. This is largely unchanged since it was first established in the 18th century and is now a centre of horticulture excellence with special focus on daffodils and bergenias.  A colorful and diversified display.

Next to Pollok house and park. Pollok House also dates from the 18th century and sits majestically close to the White Cart Water. Close by are a picturesque herd of Highland Cattle which we observed and photographed.

Nect we drove to the Springburn area of Glasgow for the highlight of the day which was a Speedway event  where we witnessed a meeting between the Glasgow Tigers and Workington Comets. This dynamic event lasted two hours and was well patronised.
