11/1 Glasgow Botanic Gardens

Yesterday Seán and I decided to shake off the post-Halloween funk by picking up food and visiting the Glasgow Botanic Gardens. We parked ourselves under our preferred tree for a while.

Grilled cheese sandwich with pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, and chicken. Nom.

Unlike the last time we visited, the conservatory was open so we got to pop in and check out the interesting plants that are kept there. Here are some of my highlights:

"Night, among the buttresses of giants; the civic embers of a structure burnt and moved away."

One of the oddest cacti I’ve ever seen.

And, of course, ice cream on the way home.

Not entirely sure what this expression is for but I’m just rolling with it.

It was a really nice day, and I’d definitely recommend the botanic gardens for a visit if autumn is getting you down and you want to see something green.
