Wednesday Walkies—Glencairn Garden 4


To get me in better shape, and to help Hestia lose some weight, we are instituting Wednesday Walkies (this is where you hear Brad in the background voicing his objection to some people’s “ubiquitous infantilization” of language). This means we will go on a walk either around our neighborhood or around a park nearby every Wednesday. For our first Wednesday Walkies, we went to Glencairn Garden.

It was a really nice day, and a bit overcast so it wasn’t boiling hot. We stopped at almost every fountain and bridge in the garden, and all the flowering plants, too. We also took loads of pictures! We had a lot of fun taking pictures of both of us, and Hestia, too. We took almost 700 pictures! We narrowed them down to the top 100, which you can see at the link below (without picture descriptions), and I picked a few of my favorites to be featured in the blog (with descriptions).
