Pronounced “IN-ver-oo,” Inverewe Gardens lie on the western coast of Scotland. I learned during my journey there that the “Mexican Gulf Stream” travels north up the coast of North America then crosses over to the west coast of Scotland before circulating back into the sea. This warms up the western coast of Scotland which in turn boasts gorgeous rhododendrons (which are protected), azaleas, ferns, palm trees and all manner of warm-climate plants. While it rained buckets on us during our tour the rain and gloom made all the greens “pop” for my camera. Cannot wait to revisit this magical country.
