As usual this was held in the stunning Spring gardens of Northernhay and Rougemont. I was there today (Sunday) and the sun was shining brightly.
This was the VIP area where you could get tea, coffee, cream teas and manicures....and yes, I did get a manicure and yes, because I am not used to them, I did smudge several of my fingers.
I noticed there was plenty for children to do: activity tents, facepainting, story-telling, ice-creams, petting animals - there were a couple of girls in dresses chasing each other around a tree on a grassy bank, and a serious looking little boy who was wandering onto the flower beds wearing his yellow all-in-one outfit. This all added to the overall picturesque scene - happy faces, a wealth of local food, young animals, spring blooms and playing children.
