I saw some elderberries, but they were not in my reach and I came to the conclusion to leave them for the birds. The park was a little muddy too, it had been raining on and off all day, and neither of us were dressed for mud-sliding, so we walked over to the Burrell. I have been there twice before, once in my student days and once related to work. It's okay, I particularly like the first floor where most of the collection is situated. The wide open windows provide a beautiful backdrop of trees which transports those inside to another place and time, especially right now with the autumnal colours. At the Burrell Collection you can wander around and look at collections of medieval art, tapestries, stained glass and English oak furniture under the watchful eyes of the security guards. There are many European paintings, including works by Cézanne and Degas. The building also hosts collection of Islamic art and works from ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome and China.
This Luohan Buddha has been at the Collection since the One Million Days in China Exhibition.
This beautiful basket is made completely from beads.
These are 'Beer Drinkers' in Paris painted by Manet (I think).
This is an art painting of 'Peasant Children'. I was struck by the expressions on their faces and how old they look for children.
It would be impossible to show you all the paintings within the building, so I snapped these collages of postcards on sale in the shop.
These are to do with the Anchor Line that sailed from the Clyde in Glasgow all over the world.
These are some Black and White photo's of ordinary peoples lives in Glasgow.
After playing tourists, we did stop by the allotment and harvested some vegetables and salad leaves. The autumn sunflowers are getting a good old bashing from the high winds and rain.
