A Peaceful Haven – Inktense Pencils in a Watercolour Moleskine
Edinburgh resembles a huge building site, at the moment, as work stutters from one street to another, as preparation for the new tramway system continues. Far better to leave that behind and re-visit the Botanic Gardens where masses of spring bulbs carpet the areas under the trees. Its always been peaceful, here, in fact my mother used to seek sanctuary in the gardens when she was studying to be a nurse in the 1930′s. She would sit and read her medical notes without distraction. Thank God the quietness hasn’t changed! Our city boasts plenty of green spaces, like this, and soon folks will make use of every available space to sit and relax – assuming the rain stays away.
