Colourful blooms at House for Art Lover Garden, Glasgow,Scotland

This afternoon, I cycled round to nearby Bellahouston Park in Glasgow, Scotland with object of photographing the colourful display at the garden attached to leading visitor attraction, House for an Art Lover.

House for an Art Lover was designed by famous Glaswegian architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1901 but the building was not completed until 1996 after a site became available following the demolition of a former Victorian era mansion. The flower garden subject of this post was developed in the former kitchen (vegetable) garden of the mansion and is protected from the elements by a tall, surrounding wall.

The garden is maintained to a high standard and includes some sub-tropical plants and  examples of topiary. Here there is an emphasis on sweet peas with other plants on display including aster and camellia.
