Dunbar's Close Garden (1983)
It looks like springtime to my untrained eye, but this photo was in fact taken on a day in August. it's interesting to compare how this pretty and colourful garden looked in 1983, as it has been transformed in recent times to reflect the more formal style of garden one would have seen in the Canongate in the 17th century. Thomas Hamilton's Royal High School floats majestically above the scene.
