Pollock Country Park & Burrell

On Saturday we made our way to the South end of Glasgow to have a nice walk through the Pollock Country Park and Burrell Collection. The weather was beautiful and I was really impressed by both the Burrell Collection and its beautiful purpose-built museum. A highlight for me as seeing the excellent collection of Degas pastel drawings, and many ancient Roman and Greek artifacts.

The gardens around Pollock House are highly manicured and colourful. While bending down close to take a photo of a pretty flower, a jolly local came by and gave us his thoughts about the gardens and asked us to have a bite. I mean he asked us literally to have a bite of the leaves from the flower, which actually tasted lovely with a spicy peppery taste.

Enormous windows brought nature and tons of natural light into some parts of the museum.
