A visit to the Royal Botanical Gardens

Yesterday a dear friend and I went to the Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh. We spent the day wandering through the gardens, visiting the glass houses and admiring the views. Since I am not a botanist and was more interested in taking photos than notes, the images below are not titled. I do not know what I was taking pictures of, save that it was pretty or interesting, so please don't ask.

Now, without further ado, the photos:

The view from the Botanics

Inverleith House, where they have art exhibits and such

The Tropical Palm House, a Victorian Hothouse built in 1834

Inside the Palm House

A bridge over the Water of Leith, not in the Botanics but nearby
