Exam Weather

Every year just at the time school children and students are studing or sitting their exams Edinburgh literally bursts into blossom in a week or so of full summer heat.  This last week has seen this once again.  The view here is of the back of the tenement at Jock’s Lodge.  Its amazing how such a peaceful tranquil oasis can be only a couple of hundred feet from a constantly busy intersection.

Driving past the centre of Craigmillar and looking out across the green fields and (slow, oh God how slow) new build homes and school, it’s becoming difficult to remember how it was oh so short a time ago.  Today I have a picture of one of the last of blocks as it stood a sole sentinal of the old Niddrie.
