Botanics and Inverleith Allotments May 11th (Rona's comments)
The weather wasn't on our side this time, but undeterred, Elspeth and I headed across the road to the allotments. I love the organised chaos of allotments - the colourful huts, the salvaged materials used to build all sorts of garden necessities and all the different planting. Despite the rain and cold I managed a few wee sketches and took some photos. Eventually though the warmth of the Hope Gateway and lunch beckoned!
