It's All About the Flowers!
April Showers have definitely brought the May flowers to Edinburgh! Everywhere you look, the site of budding crocuses and daffodils as well as rows of gorgeous cherry blossoms line the historic city streets.
Did you know that the happiness and enjoyment of seeing blossoms in full
bloom (in particular the cherry blossom) is a traditional Japanese custom known as Hanami
? Our friends at Edinburgh World Heritage
have shed some light on this intriguing concept.
If you are looking for the perfect place to take in these local floral beauties, why not take a stroll through Edinburgh's historic Royal Botanical Gardens
The original garden was established in 1670 and during the 20th century acquired three Regional Gardens – the mountainous Benmore in Argyll; Dawyck in the wooded hills of the Scottish Borders and Logan on the Gulf Stream-warmed southern peninsula of Dumfries & Galloway. Together they represent one of the world’s largest living collections of plants!
