Autumn is always a colourful time in New Lanark Roof Garden! The highlight this month is surely the curved border with its riot of beautiful anemones glowing pink and purple in the slanting sunlight. These plants are real toughies that can stand up well to Scotland’s climate. The swallows have now disappeared to spend winter in Africa, but the autumn song of the robin trills out from the trees in the village below, and a Small Tortoiseshell butterfly made an appearance in the warm spell at the start of the month.
