Family time in Edinburgh

We had a great first day in Edinburgh. This morning the boys and I walked in the Botanic Gardens with my mum. We found wild flowers which had sprung from seeds collected locally, and we spent a long time watching the water birds on the lake, from the Chinese pavillion.
Just to clarify yesterday's post, College is Secondary School for UK pupils, and Junior High for Americans!
Hope you've had a good weekend too...

Could this possibly be your shortest post ever? Lolol. Sounds like you had a wonderful time in the Botanical Garden. I could spend hours and hours in places like that as well.

Off to the charity shops tomorrow then?

Oh wow, those wild flowers are so pretty! Glad you are out enjoying yourselves. I have finished your pressie but I'm really not sure about it. I'll have to have a think about it. The girls love it but I'm just not sure.

What lovely wild flowers, I'd like to grow a meadow like that.
