Edinburgh’s transition to Spring

Letter 132

The sun in shining, the sky is bright blue, the grass is greener and the flowers are blossoming. This is spring in Edinburgh; when the meadows becomes a haven for walking, sports and barbeques, the stony buildings look a little bit grander and everyone has a distinct smile on their face. Spring is my favourite time in Edinburgh and with ‘The Beast from the East’ subsiding, it’s time for Edinburgh to shine in spring.

It was a wonderful day on Tuesday so I decided to grab my camera and walk through the meadows to uni to check out how spring is coming along. It’s not quite spring yet, but it’s getting there and it’s looking more and more beautiful already.

Walking around Edinburgh is wonderful anytime of year. The building are classically stunning and the old town provides a mismatched collage of styles that make for an interesting contrast to the ordered new town. Even the 5 minutes from the meadows to my studio building is a sight for sore eyes.

My walk home, or to my boyfriend’s a little further south in Edinburgh (because of the exploding toilet in my flat – a story for another time), was equally beautiful as the sun was setting. I didn’t catch a striking orange sky or anything, but I did enjoy the clear evening and some beautiful buildings on the way.

A day of Spring transition. I hope I’ll be able to post in a couple of weeks about the meadows being covered in yellow daffodils, purple flowers and pink blossom. Now that really is a sight for sore eyes.

Until next time,

From Lou
