David Welch Winter Gardens.

The other week on my day off, the sun was shining (which is a rare occurrence here in Scotland) so I decided to carpe the diem and go out for a walk along river Dee.

With a coffee in one hand (obviously), camera in the other - I finally ended up in Duthie Park.

My aim was to explore the David Welch Winter Gardens that are located within the park - and to my great delight I discovered there was not even an entry fee to be paid at the door!!
(I was thinking one would have to pay a pound or so, and thus darned myself for having not brought my Student ID, but that was clearly not needed = pleasant surprise!)

Now there are way more than funny looking cactuses (what is the plural of cactus?! #helpaforeignerout)in there, but for whatever reason the photos from my DSLR seems to have vanished into thin air, so what is left is a bunch of iphone-photos. Amongst them these little creatures -- turtles!!! Which I by the way do hope don't get hit in the head when those coins are being thrown down there...

 ... It must be a rather Scottish things, these Winter Gardens? I am fairly sure I have seen both Glasgow and Edinburgh having one too... It is a really cool concept though! 4/5 toasters for the Winter Gardens!
