A beautifully colourful Autumn day at Dawyck Botanic Garden, near Peebles in the Scottish borders.
These gardens aren’t quite as large as the ones in Edinburgh but are a lot more closed in with undergrowth and trees. That makes for a more maze-like experience – wonder what’s round the next corner?
The tree above has to be the most colourful I’ve ever seen. I’ve done virtually no saturation on that image in post-production, it really did look that bright.
Dawyck House, above. Still a private residence too, so no access to the public. Not really missing much when the gardens are this nice though.
More in part 2, next…
