Today, at Greenbank House garden, I was presented with a wide array of colourful flowers spanning a spectrum comprising pink, cream, purple, white, copper, blue, violet and scarlet. Despite being late season I found the display (depth and range) superior to that usually available during the summer period with added dimension of the harsh and angled sunlight.

This morning I took advantage of the (somewhat unusual) bright sunlight to obtain images of the illuminated trees, leaves and vegetation which illustrate the progressive transformation to the threshold of winter. Location was Rouken Glen Park in Glasgow, Scotland.

Today, I visited Holmwood House, a high status residential property which was designed by local architect, Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson (1817-75) for James Couper, a wealthy businessman who used the property for both business and residential purposes, as was common in those days. Construction occurred between 1857-8 when Glasgow was experiencing rapid economic growth.
