PHOTO – Spring in Edinburgh, Lauriston Castle and Kyoto Garden

There’s nothing we like more than exploring Edinburgh. Spring is well and truly here and we’ve been using any free time we’ve had to explore our favourite green spaces.

We’ve mentioned Lauriston Castle before and the wonderful Edinburgh Kyoto Friendshp Garden that is housed in the grounds there.  Upon visiting today, we were very excited to see the first signs of the Japanese blossom on the trees.  In another couple of weeks, the place will be stunning with the avenue of trees in full bloom.
