• Short Summary

    Exotic flowers and plants seen in tropical gardens in Wigtownshire in Scotland.

  • Description

    Wigtownshire, Scotland.

    Various shots of a tropical garden; exotic flowers and palm trees; goldfish swimming in a rather murky looking ornamental pond.

    L/S of Logan House (looks like a small stately home). More shots of the exotic and colourful plant life in the gardens; we see a middle-aged couple, Mr and Mrs Cubbins wandering around.

    The Head Gardener, Mr Colledge is seen working on a flower bed with a hoe. More general garden shots follow.

    Note: On file is magazine article about the gardens. There are no clues about who Mr and Mrs Cubbins are; perhaps they lived in Logan House?
