spring/summer in Glasgow!




Enjoyed a stroll around the grounds here the other day. You wouldn't actually believe this is just outside Glasgow although it is the Science Park and set on the edge of woodland.

Interesting to note from something I read recently that Rhododendrons which look so nice this time of year have actually become a horticultural menace in many areas of Scotland. There is something in their roots that actually poisons the soil to prevent other indigenous plants from thriving. I guess at least its not as virulent as Japanese Knotweed!
