This weekend, I went to the Winter Gardens in Duthie Park, Aberdeen. I visited with my boyfriend, my sister Lou and our nephew Brodie. A particular highlight was the cactus garden. Cacti are so far removed from what I am used to seeing every day. They were huge and they came in such a weird (and often humorous!) variety of shapes. Visiting such an unusual place really makes you think outside the box. I felt very inspired!
