Had a wonderful visit to St Andrews Botanical Garden today


By Scotkat


I have always wanted to visit but some just never got there .
So today after our daily morning walk and then laundry hung out we decided to drive over this morning since the sun was shining.

I left my laundry frozen on the line as it was ever so cold.

We had a lovely walk in the gardens its beautiful will need to go back to visit when all the spring blooms are out.

And the glasshouses are open to the public.

Then we drove down to the beach where we sat with a nice picnic lunch then went on another long walk .

We walked back by the beach it was lovely lots of folks walking and there dogs running on the beach and horses on the beach to.
A perfect day out .Will add some photos later.

Some days are like this one when everything just works out and you have a very special time.

After the long wet winter it is wonderful to feel the sun shine on us in spite of the cold!

Do you find that whenever you see an unexpected pic of snowdrops or other spring flowers you find you've got a big smile on your face?
