This evening, I am focusing on a horticultural theme as manifested in Spring Narcissus blooms. Earlier today I cycled up to nearby Greenbank Garden which is renowned for its collection of 350 named daffodils. During my short visit I was able to locate 21 different species a selection of which are provided below.

Elsewhere today, I have arranged private tours for a visitor in Inverness and Edinburgh, exchanged correspondence re a prospective Whisky Tour and received an enquiry for a tour in 2011. Sadly, a private tour of the Scottish Highlands which was in early stage discussion was cancelled when the clients changed their mind. As with most years, I find June extremely busy but May less so.

Weather here in Glasgow was dry and sunny if a little cool.

This afternoon I visited House for Art Lover garden, Bellahouston Park. As will be seen from the images below, the garden is a great credit to the people who manage it. Immaculate with vibrant colours generated by the daffodils and tulips and something of a hidden gem in the Glasgow scene.

This morning I went out (during a break in the rain) to take some photographs of the emerging flowers in Bellahouston Walled Garden, Glasgow (near House for Art Lover).

Provided below are images of a colourful spectacle including crocus, daffodils, polyanthus ( I think!), snow drops and more.

Overall, quite a feast for the eye!
