Recently I had the chance to go to Helensburgh, just when the cherry blossoms were at their best:
Helensburgh is west of Glasgow, on the north side of the River Clyde, which becomes very wide as it flows to the sea. You can see the town of Greenock on the other side of the Clyde:
It was a warm morning, and such a pleasure to walk along under the beautiful trees:
It felt like being in a fairyland! When we were still living in Aberdeen, we came to Helensburgh for a long September weekend, and I blogged about that here. I’d heard that Helensburgh was beautiful at blossom time, and now that we live much nearer, I wanted to see it for myself. I wasn’t disappointed!

A Happy Mother’s Day to my American friends, and to everyone, I hope you’ve had (or are having) an excellent weekend.
