Gardens at Bellahouston Park


We greatly enjoyed a stroll through the gardens at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow. The flowers were in full bloom. While I wouldn’t describe the gardens as being lush, the colors were outstanding.

In 1938 the park was home to the Empire Exhibition, which is sort of like a World’s Fair. There is a map of what the area looked nearby, and it must have been an impressive sight!

While the whole park is 180 acres, we only saw a teeny tiny part that is next to the House for an Art Lover (that post is coming tomorrow!).  But the wet Scottish weather can only be wonderful for plants, as evidenced by the amazing greenery we saw everywhere we looked.
