Another photo taken from my car while I was stuck at traffic lights.
I don't have time to compose a shot, so this one could have done
with a little more of the building I think. But the steeple is a nice architectural feature.
I think it is on top of Preston St Primary School.

We were surprised to wake up to a dusting of snow this morning.
It was thawing quickly, so I grabbed my camera to take some icy photos:
(Click on the photos for a close up)

By this time it was quite sunny so Emily and I went to the canal to take some
photos of the daffodils and crocuses.
The weather changed, we were freezing, so we came home.
By the time we arrived home-only 30 minutes after we left,
this is what out house looked like:

and our street:

The photos were taken through the front windscreen of the car.
And now the sun is shining and it a gorgeous day outside!

Morningside, in Edinburgh is a gentile, Victorian middle class suburb.
The houses are are mixture of traditional tenament flats,
victorian terraces and grander detached victorian houses.
Morningside Road, the main shopping street,
is a mish mash of Victorian architecture and sixties shop fronts.
Despite this mix of architecture it comes as a complete shock
to wander 50 metres along a side street, through an archway,
and find yourself in the American Wild West.

How Bizarre:

Washing drying

This is how I dry my washingduring the winter-
all draped over our central heating radiators.
Not exactly HOUSE and GARDENS-but efficient!

I was at a conference today at this football stadium.
It is the Hibernian Stadium in Edinburgh, and I took these photos
because Jack loves football stadiums!
It is in a very built up part of the city, so it is virtually impossible to get a
complete view.

This is the front:

Some display cases in the lounge area:
