One of those days when we had planned to do one thing, but the weather decided we should do something else. Headed to the coast to explore the Montrose Basin Nature Reserve, when it started raining. Since most every day's weather forecast is chances of rain and sunshine, we decided to find something else to do during the rain, while waiting for the sun. A quick look at the map showed House of Dun, belonging to the NTS. Serendipity is such a lovely thing!

|Entrance to house grounds from garden.|
|Perfectly symmetrical Georgian style house.|
|The box hedge at the back entrance is symmetrical, too.|
After the tour, the rain held off long enough for us to visit the walled garden. There were so many roses blooming, their perfume filled the air. But, it was the perennials that caught our eye.
|We have seen these in several gardens, not realizing they opened into sunshine yellow flowers.|
