This is ‘The House For An Art Lover’, designed by Mackintosh, in Glasgow. I visited for lunch with family and friends, we had a fabulous value two course meal which was delicious. I should have taken a photograph of the meal it was very nicely presented, the atmosphere in the dining room was lovely and it was quite busy.
We went to walk off the gorgeous strawberry dessert and cheesecake. I spied a gate in the wall and we wandered through into this beautiful garden. A lovely surprise in full bloom.
I loved these vibrant colours in the hanging baskets and the lawn below was immaculate like a carpet.
I wondered if I could keep any of these type of plants on my balcony. They must be hardy to survive the harsh weather of a Glasgow winter.
So just to prove my life isn’t all about work 😀. I wanted to show you my new vertical garden that we bought the next day. Da Dahhh. I was telling my blog friend Koko about it and she asked me the name of the plants mmmm. I knew I should have kept those little cards, I know the bottom one is a ‘Pineapple plant’, the ones to the right were a gift and they’ve survived a couple of weeks already I think they’re called Lilies. My Mum said if I killed everything else she’d be surprised if an ivy couldn’t survive so we have one of those and a pot of chives.
I love this time of year at the Conservatoire you can always get a practice room and mine this morning was fabulous. The sunshine lured me away eventually.
For a cool smoothie, a lunch time treat 😀.
