Anyone who knows Edinburgh will recognise the iconic profile of Arthur’s Seat which from the window of our accommodation for a few days looks like an alien land mass looming over the top of the properties across the road – I have always thought of it as a reclining elephant, but from this perspective it takes on a different appearance altogether. Also intriguing are the drifts of crisp and crunchy leaves on thepavements outside, making me realise that we never have crisp and crunchy leaves in our garden at home – are our leaves always damper, I wonder? They are certainly less buffeted by the wind as our garden is quite sheltered, so did Autumn start earlier this much further north, or could be it the type of trees the leaves came from? Our visit to the Botanical Gardens this afternoon did not provide the same crisp and crunchy evidence, so a walk round the block to assess the local trees may be called for to satisfy my curiosity!
