Barley Fields





Barley fields last week  -  East Lothian


















On the right the road follows a historic estate boundary wall.
This road leads to a country park created in honour of  the American environmentalist
John Muir who lived in the nearby town of Dunbar until the age of eleven,
when his family emigratrd to America. He would have known this area well.

   




The wall is probably at least two or three hundred years old.





The Scottish Baronial style mansion encircled by the wall.
This shot was taken from the road and quite a distance away.






Cows in a field adjacent to the house.

Wild Plants









At the edge of woodland in a city park wild plants are in reproduction mode.
At first glance this tangle of Cleavers, Brambles and Nettles looks chaotic but there is
a natural order in place - everything is making the most of its alloted space.

This sturdy16th century wall continues to mark the boundary between
community woodland and Royal Park in central Edinburgh.
