The first weekend in June sees the Gardening Scotland show at the Royal Highland Showground near Edinburgh. The West of Scotland Dry Stone Walling Association do an exhibition garden for the show each year, and very kindly invite members of the Scottish DSWA branches to join in (see posts from June 2011/2012 for previous years' entries). This year, the garden was designed around a Celtic knot.
The plan had originally been to have the crossovers as free-standing arches, but this proved too tricky with the somewhat irregular stone, so instead a more straightforward crossing was used.
The result was impressive as ever, and won a bronze medal.
This blog, and the rest of the site, are produced by Donald McInnes, treasurer of the SES DSWA (I'm the baldy one, sometimes in a saltire hat).
