Clever find Peter. Good angle and detail. The pink unusual shaped contraption really stands out against the greenery. I nearly put in my extreme dining where you were suspended by a crane above Princes Street Gardens but changed my mind.

Having watched Chelsea on TV all last week I'm surprised that this is the first pic I've seen on this site from it.  Well caught Peter!!

Nice vantage point. I suppose it takes gardening to a new level.

Excellent idea, Peter, it looks amazing, something like a modern version of the Hanging Gardens of Semiramiada ...
Good luck.

LOL. That certainly is extreme....you would need a very tall ladder to undertake the weeding! I like the green foliage against the pink of the structure. Very interesting capture. Well done Peter.

Thanks for all your comments.  This was a true spectacle and this is only one element of the whole design!  I would like one of these, but unfortunately, I can't fit a crane into my garden.

Good shot Peter, it certainly is extreme. I wouldn't want to have to drag the lawn mower up there though.

Yes, he did get a gold medal!  I understand the garden is going to be rebuilt in Ireland.

Wonder if he wore a parachute when pottering around his garden! Nice shot Peter. Thanks for your nice comment.

When they rebuild it in Ireland I hope they remember that it's green side up! (only joking).
