Sunday morning in Castle gardens

This morning in Castle Gardens the remnants of the leaves were still on the trees.  It had been freezing overnight but
the frost had gone and the roses were just covered with water droplets.

There were just a few people in the park walking their dogs around the Wallace monument.

Castle gardens.

Walking up the hill towards these wrought iron gates you can see across the gardens towards the Cathedral and Linen centre.


as you walk through the gates themselves there is a large flower bed to the right hand side. There are still some flowers hanging on in this sheltered spot despite the onset of winter. Mainly rhododendrons. You can pick out blooms which are surprisingly fresh right next door to petals which have completely lost their colour and are reduced to what looks like their skeletal remains.
