While we were living in Germany I had heard about the gardens and wanted so badly to visit. My cousin was also living overseas at the time. He was in Scotland experiencing a semester abroad at the Glasgow School of Art. (You can read about the beautiful library featured in a previous post.) Eric had asked if he could come for a visit at Easter time and I knew it was the perfect opportunity to go.
We took the train and experienced a beautiful, sunny day.
It is a wonderful place to take children.

They also have several temperature controlled greenhouses that house all sorts of flora and fauna.

Yes, it's true, in my eyes no one else could ever fill Mr. Decor's shoes. :)
