Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle - The Half Moon Battery

There's no denying the power of Edinburgh Castle

Tattoo Seating from the Grassmarket

Right now preparations are under way for the Military Tattoo. The seating arrangements are like building a stadium on the Esplanade, but they are only there for three months each year.  The buses pass our house each night to drop the performers off and bring them back to barracks each night.

Sometimes it seems the castle is around every corner.  The other day, when it was windy,  there was a workman on the scaffolding up by that flagpole!

Also comes in pink

There's something to be said for mass planting:

The Meadows today
Despite the cold weather we've had that is blossom, not snow on the ground.

Barclay Church
If you try hard you can imagine a rocket taking off from clouds of pink exhaust fumes!
