Welcome back to Glasgow! These photos were taken in the beautiful botanical gardens greenhouse. This post represents a first here on Tape Parade…

This is the first time I’ve had too many photos from the same “shoot” to fit into a single post. I hesitate to use the word “shoot” because I never really plan a specific shoot for blog photos – I just trundle my camera everywhere I go and if I spot a nice area, well, that’s just a bonus.

Despite not being planned, I like to think my yellow 50s number goes quite nicely amongst the tropical foliage. We headed over to Glasgow Botanical Gardens without really knowing what to expect – but between the gorgeous sunlight and the colourful blooms it ended up being one of our favourite parts of the whole tour!

These photos feature the majestic Kibble Palace – a huge wrought iron greenhouse used for housing temperate plants. I particularly loved all the Australian and New Zealand ferns, and the fantastic old iron steps – no longer used for any practical purpose, but hidden like a giant a prop amongst the creepers.

    Fabulous dress! Love the image with you and the bright yellow (banana?) leaf!
    Lovely greenhouse.
    I also enjoyed the “sandwiched” formatting of this post – images & words & images.

    Awww, beautiful shots here Laila! I love the yellow shade of your dress against the deep greens of the plants. Just lovely! – Tasha

    The Botanical Gardens in Glasgow are amazing! I also loved your yellow dress, and yes, it goes very well with the plants there! That is a place I would love to visit, it’s really beautiful, through your pictures! I am like you, I always have my camera with me (not mobile). We never know when we will see a very nice thing!

  8. Laura says:

    these are beautiful – the photos, the greenhouse, the dress and you! i’ve been to glasgow a couple of times but haven’t really seen anything there, so i’ll definitely have to go back and also visit this botanical garden, haha:-) xx

  9. I absolutely adore your dress!!! the color suits you and the venue perfectly!!!

  10. Jaina says:

    This place is stunning! As are you in the gorgeous dress. Did not realise there was such an awesome botanical garden in Glasgow.

  11. Hello Laila,
    You look gorgeous in that dress, perfect match for those plants and flower.
    I didn’t know there was a green house in Glasgow. When is about green houses it always comes to my mind a big Victorian one, I think now it is close.

    The photos are really nice, I’m glad that I’m not the only one just taking photos as a bonus, the idea is to enjoy the place as it is, no planned shots.
    xoxo
