Greenbank Garden, owned by the National Trust for Scotland, lies in the Clarkston area in the south of Glasgow.
I’m not sure who owns Greenbank House, but it wasn’t open to visitors.
The ‘Green Man’ sculpture, which symbolises rebirth, was commissioned to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Holmwood House and Garden.
I assume that the nearby bench was part of that commission.
I also liked the green metal bench. Greenbank Garden was pretty busy on the day which I visited. But there were still lot of peaceful corners in which to sit.
The large elephant shaped bush was cute.
Continuing the animal theme. there was a lamb sculpture sitting in the few remaining daffodils.
The lion’s stretched out front paws were huge.
The sundial was in a strategic position.
I don’t believe that my photos do justice to Greenbank Garden. The variety and colours of the various trees, plants and flowers aren’t fully evident.
Unfortunately, the fountain section of the garden was closed during my visit.
There’s a woodland walk around the perimeter of Greenbank Garden.
I liked the fact that Greeenbank Garden is open until dusk,. The cafe and shop close at 5pm, but there is access to the toilets until the garden closes..
