Just over a year ago I met a lovely couple at a conference in Philadelphia. He had won a free place at the event as a "new professional". His wife had taken annual leave so that she could accompany him on the trip. I really enjoyed their company in the US and said that if they were ever in Edinburgh, they should let me know.
Anyway, this afternoon they arrived in my home town. I met them in the late afternoon for a drink, a walk, tea, cake, more drink and lots of chat. As part of the walk we took in the Botanical Gardens and it is here that I made my blip for the day.
Of course, once again I have to confess that I have no idea of the name of the flower!
