Thought I would post some pics of the neighbourhood for those of you who don’t live in Edinburgh.
Coming up from Cannonmills or down from Broughton Street,  the streets are quite beautiful. Georgian houses give way to Georgian tenements.

In the foreground you can see the lawn we seeded Saturday, which I’m watching avidly for signs of germination. The poor hedge is looking a bit bedraggled from the crazy winds this week. When will it be summer?
