Pictorial blethers

Not posing ...

This photo looks so posed - like one of these ?70s? record sleeves with sultry photos of the artists randomly dotted about a landscape looking at everything but the camera. But it wasn't posed at all - I merely turned in our stately progress among the tropical plants in the hothouses of Edinburgh Botanic Gardens and found my granddaughters looking studious and thoughtful while Mr B appeared to be daring a succulent to speak to him, or perhaps bite.

The girls had wanted to come in here; they charmed the person at the door into giving them maps and leaflets and both appeared to be studying them intermittently as we explored.

It was, incidentally, hot and humid at this point, though you wouldn't know from looking at my subjects!
