Lovely afternoon at Belhaven Community Garden for the first of our seasonal visits. Beautiful afternoon, great company (as well as delicious scones – thank you Lucy). Weather so good that we were able to spend most of the time walking in the gardens, taking in all the new growth and checking out the new plants in the poly tunnel.
Wonderful afternoon at National Museum of Scotland’s ‘Embroidered Stories’ exhibition. Volunteer, Hilary Hall, guided us around the museum and gave a short talk on the history of samplers.
