The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

is right down the street. It is the second oldest botanical garden in Britain, having begun with specimens in 1690, moved to this location in 1820, so plenty of time for trees to grow – the oldest is the University of Oxford Botanic Garden, c. 1621. 

I had been once before and was delighted to get back there. Here are some of the trees, from top to bottom: Cedrus deodara, native to the Himalayas; Monkey Puzzle (Auracaria auracana), native to Chile and Argentina; and Cedrus libani, native to Syria, Lebanon, Turkey.
