AROUND KILSYTH

JUNE 2024

June - isn't it supposed to be summertime now? Rain, high winds, cold - well that's Scotland, and there's nothing we can do about it. Today (Saturday 8 June) I went for a walk down the Coach Road, along the path leading to the quarry then a short stretch of the canal. Lots of activity as families are about, especially at the new Roman play area; good to see it so popular. Here are some photographs from my walk. The second photo is an area the Council has planted as a wildflower area with a mixture of daisies, etc.                                                                                                                    Violet

MAY 2024

Firstly, I would like to apologise for no article last month. Two reasons: the bad weather and the fact that I had a knee operation earlier this year so having difficulty getting out and about. Here we are in May already and, although while typing this, it's only the first day, I sincerely hope we get some better more spring like weather for a good while. Anyway, as usual, the Burngreen is looking particularly beautiful so here are some photographs of the lovely blossom trees as well as a rhodendron bush. We should be really proud of how well the Burngreen is being looked after. I hope you like these photographs. I don't need to remind you to "click" on each photo to see properly!

Here are some more phorographs also taken in May. The bluebells and wild garlic ere stunning up on the Lade Path. The trees are such a lovely fresh spring green. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

MARCH 2024

March - one foot in winter, the other in spring! Time is marching on, before we know it we will be celebrating Easter. Here are some photographs taken around the Colzium on Monday 12 March. There are still some snowdrops and the daffodils are beginning to appear. Click on each photo to see in full.

FEBRUARY 2024

Here we are in February already and still a mixed bag of weather! Still, there's not much we can do about that! Here are some photographs taken in that lovely garden we have on our doorstep - The Walled Garden at Colzium. The snowdrops are mainly all open now, such beautiful wee flowers.

JANUARY 2024

Now that we have increased capacity on our website, I couldn't resist adding some more photos to our January column after a lovely walk this morning to the Colzium. The sun was shining although it was a wee bit chilly! However, well wrapped up and a nice coffee at the Clock Cafe helped us along the way. I hope anyone looking at these photographs will be able to recognise the locations. 11 January 2024
