More from my day trip to this very colourful, Autumnal botanic garden near Peebles.
Oak trees are all around the garden and appear to be very old. Still going strong though.
Above is the Dawyck Chapel that sits right in the centre of the garden. Like the house it’s private too.
What’s behind the gate, I wonder?
I would thoroughly recommend a visit to Dawyck, great for a wee day out and a spot of lunch. And, for me, plenty of photo opportunities too.
And finally, a wooden sculpture of David Douglas. He was a Scottish botanist explorer who went on expeditions all over the world in the 19th century, collecting samples for botanic gardens like this one. Haven’t worked out who he’s spying on through his telescope though.
