We were at Branklyn last week and saw the crevice rocks waiting to be positioned. The garden was showing well - it has to be the best two acres in Scotland. Jim and Petra also on grand form.

Great trip rounded off by splendid cakes and tea on the lawn - oh, so very civilised.

If you're in the area do visit and from further afield, it's well worth the trip. Looking forward already to a return visit to view the crevice garden.
Yemen, what a country ... Haraz mountains, Socotra, Sana'a, Hadramaut, the empty quarter.... a country of stunning, mind altering beauty...and the friendliest of people.
