Paradise for plant ladies and monsteras, the corridor of the beautiful Olrig House - a hidden gem along the North Coast 500 near Castletown. ~ We're deaming about a wee roadtrip soon, any tips on cute B&B's and pretty country houses off the beaten path? 🚙🏡
'They make a fuss about Hogsmeade, but I assure you, Harry, it's not all it's cracked up to be. All right, the sweetshop's rather good, and Zonko's Joke Shop's frankly dangerous, and yes, the Shrieking Shack is always worth a visit, but really, Harry, apart from that, you're not missing anything.' J.K. Rowling ~ Anyone else thinks this wee cottage looks like one from the imaginary Hogsmeade? Or have I just listened to way too much of the Harry Potter audio books recently? ⚡️✨
Who does not love a Morgan? 🚙 We spotted this navy @morganmotor beauty in Stockbridge last week on the way to @sooukdotcom's Poolside exhibition. If you have not yet seen Soo's exhibition at the Saorsa Gallery, you'd better hurry up - it closes today at 5pm. ~ In case you are in Morgan spotting mode, keep your eyes peeled as @contemporaryclassicstour will be in town 🙋🏻🙋🏻♂️ ~ #asundaycarpic #MorganAdventure
Happy weekend ☀️ What are your plans? We're planning a wee walk in town with Mr Enthusiast as I'm getting cabin fever after spending the last few days indoors.
Today was a good day 🎈 We celebrated 5 years in our home. I got a phone call I've been waiting for over 2 years. I also passed my final professional exam. Someone please pinch me I'm not dreaming! 🙈💕
Summer evening walks in the hood with Mr Enthusiast 💕 ~ Where are your favourite walking routes in the 'burgh?
Oh hello, deer - you have something on your face? 🌾 This was the view from our car as we travelled towards Glen Etive in the Scottish Highlands. The deer were so tame and came super close! This fella was pretty inquisitive and nearly popped her head in the car as I photographed her. ~ If you're planning a trip to the area, please remember not to feed the deer and #roamresponsibly. ~ #WHPjourney #asundaycarpic
Looks like it's another gorgeously sunny weekend ahead of us ☀️ Where do you escape from the heat? Heading to the seaside 🌊 or to a secret urban village by the river?
Another shot from last weekend's poppy field. Can you spot Arthur's Seat in the background? ~ No poppies were harmed taking this photo, I used the existing paths and tractor tire marks in the field. Scotland has the right to roam responsibly and I respected these guidelines. If you're thinking of visiting this poppy field to take photos, please remember to #roamresponsibly and check out @roamresponsibly ❤️
Yesterday night we went for a wee adventure with Mr Enthusiast as I could not bear staying indoors any longer 🚙 Our destination was the most photographed poppy field of Midlothian 🌹 and special thanks to @charles.mcguigan for sharing its location. If you look carefully, you can even spot Arthur's Seat in the skyline, right above my hat 🕵🏻♀️ ~ While we could not stay for sunset 🌅 due to my pain getting stronger, this short trip was totally worth the soreness. We even had an impromtu instameet with @scotlandwithfluffywolf 🐶, @edinburgh_edition 💃🏻 and @picture_scotland 📷 For the first time in 2 weeks I managed to forget about my lung issues and very much looking forward to full recovery, ready for many more adventures ❤️ ~ No poppies were harmed taking this photo, I used the existing paths and tractor tire marks in the field. Scotland has the right to roam responsibly and I respected these guidelines.

Happy weekend! What are your plans for the next two days? ~ It's another weekend I'm going to spend inside recovering, but hoping it's the last one. Luckily Mr Enthusiast is taking excellent care of me - right now he's making pancakes for breakfast 💕
The hottest day of the year calls for a summer feast by the beach ☀️ ~ Here's one we certainly recommend: the guys behind the popular @buckandbirch pop-up dinners have teamed up with award winning mixologist @mirankchauhan to create 'Nurture Nature, Eat' at Portobello's @dalriadabar. The menu features delicious seasonal foraged ingredients 🌱🍇, local produce 🐮🐟 and the Buck & Birch signature @aelderelixir 🍸 ~ We were kindly invited to sample the menu back in May and had a lovely date night with Mr Enthusiast. The next dinners are on 13-14 July and if you're quick, you might be able to book the last few places. Check out our blog post for further details, link in bio. ~ #ad #nurturenatureeat
Wandering around the mix of old and new in the Quartermile area I spotted these funky windows. Such conversions of old buildings can either turn out great or real bad - I think the Quartermile is a good example and I love how they found a new use of the old structures while preserving them. ~ Wondering how the building looked like when it was still a hospital - did you know that Mr Enthusiast was born here at the old Royal Infirmary's maternity ward? Do you also know someone who was born here?
What a perfect washing day it's been ☀️ Can you spot the cat sitting in the shade? 🐱 ~ With next week's predicted heatwave I am seriously considering spending the days in the park. Surely surely some vitamin D would help my recovery? 🏖
Happy weekend, folks! What are your plans for the first few days of summer? ☀️ ~ My Saturday started with a @madmacaron delivery courtesy of my lovely in-laws 🍰 Our neighbours have been absolutely amazing too - they checked up on me regularly while Mr Enthusiast was at work yesterday, I received a bouquet of flowers, fruit and magazines to read 🌸🍇 I could totally get used to this, minus the chest pain 🤕 ~ #natureindoors #indoorgarden #indoorjungle #plantgang #plantsmakepeoplehappy #greenedit #archilovers #welcometothejungle #outsidein
'If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.' Frances Hodgson Burnett ~ Happy Summer Solstice, folks! It looks like a beautiful summer evening in the 'burgh - we will be sipping some cold brew tea to celebrate the longest day of the year and our 10 year anniversary ☀️It's good to be finally back home 💕 #loveonthelongestday
