Lucy's Garden

While in Scotland we visited many gardens, but my favourite was the garden of Lucy Mackenzie. Her garden, Lip na Cloiche, is situated close to the shoreline on the Isle of Mull and has a stunning view of Loch Tuath and the Isle of Ulna.


We had a very early start the day we visited Lucy's garden, 
our ferry left at 7 am so coffee and scones awaited us in the garden.

I am joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.
Have a wonderful week!!

coffee and scones in a garden on the Isle of Mull...now that sounds fabulous! We traveled across Mull to take a little ferry to the Isle of Iona back in 2006..
Beautiful mosaics!

This is exactly how I picture the Scottish countryside. We visited Scotland a few years ago but didn't make it out of Edinburgh. I would love to go back and explore outside the city. Lovely photos.
