Spring has sprung along with the garlic!

Time to shed those layers and get out of the house!

I do enjoy exploring my local parks one of my favourites is Pollok Country Park, its Glasgow’s largest and only country park and well worth a visit. ¬†There’s plenty for everyone to see and do regardless of the weather, for those rainy days you have the world famous Burrell Collection and Pollok House, but today the sun was shining, ¬†perfect for a bike ride around the grounds.

Everything is bursting into life especially the wild garlic, the smell was out of this world. I think wild garlic pesto might be on the menu very soon!

On the way home I stopped to say hello to these guys. The highland coo’s are dotted all around the park, you can catch them having a munch at feeding time. The wee ones are ever so cute and the big ones are just scary especially up close. They escaped a few years back, I had to jump up a tree to get out of their way – you don’t want to argue with rampaging cows!

So now to find a wild garlic recipe and see how much I need to forage!
