Bluebells are carpeting the garden, interspersed with blue poppies and rhododendrons in red and pink - Kirklands House and Garden near Saline in a colourful sight this spring.

The garden is open to the public every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 2pm to 4.30pm.

And on Sunday, May 21, from 2pm to 5pm, the Kirkland Garden will be holding a charity opening as part of Scotland's Garden Scheme.

Built in 1832, Kirklands has been the Hart family home for 45 years.

Among the features in the grounds are a walled garden, woodland garden, rockery displays, herbaceous borders, a bog garden by the Saline Burn, and 20 acres of woodland with a pathway by the burn.

There are plants for sale, all propagated at Kirklands.

The charity event will raise funds for Scotland's Garden Scheme charities and Saline and District Heritage Society.
