Holyrood Palace

November 04, 2013

Colours! When I think about the gardens behind the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the pictures in my head look like this: colours popping, mega contrasts and yellow and green. And the unusual warmth of the Scottish summer this year. The stones, which are not used to the sunlight, soaking it in as if to save it for the next years. The lawn looking as if they fertilise it with neon.

This is what my memories of the Palace of Holyroodhouse look like.
