Detail of the Memorial Pavilion 

This is structure seen in previous post. Exterior and interior window, inside walls and ceiling, and detail of thistle tile. The detail in the pavilion in Queen Mother’s garden is a “celebration of Scotland, its landscapes, its resources and its wildlife. Shells and pebbles for interior walls were collected by schoolchildren across Scotland. Native and exotic cones on the ceiling, representing the four corners of the globe, were collected from the RBGE and its three regional gardens.” The thistle (on tile) is the emblem and national flower of Scotland. The garden and pavilion were added in 2006.
