The Gardens

I thought I would post some of the shots from the Burns Monument and Gardens. There are quite a few so I apologise for that - mind you I have whittled it down a wee bit. 

 What a nice place to sit and ponder.

 A monkey puzzle tree
 
 Imagine this with all the leaves.

I love these shaped hedges.


Not many flowers but plenty of lovely trees. 
Note to self - I must go back in the Spring/Summer.

Oh Ellie! Such a beautiful place to walk. I am really intrigued with the monkey puzzle tree. I've never seen one before and it is amazing!

Such a beautiful place! I love those round hedges...someone sure took some time to trim those, huh?
Love all the photos!

I have always wondered why they call it the monkey puzzle tree? :)

Hope you're well Ellie, I always love stopping by.

I love the rounded hedges....in theory....now that I live at a home that is supposed to have those...and we don't know how to do it...or own the things you are supposed to use on them....they aren't nearly as attractive! I do like the monkey puzzle tree though!

I LOVE 2nd, 4th, 7th and 8th--really enjoyed these. If you want to post more, I would not be disappointed at all.
Soo pretty. You should have lots of pictures of something this pretty so don't apologize for having lots of photos to look at. We have Duke Gardens here in Durham, NC and it is my favorite place to visit. We go there on my birthday every year.
