Book fair

I went to a secondhand book fair in Edinburgh today.
It was very, very crowded-and sadly the books were priced high. There was some great ephemera, but again, the prices were high. In the end I found some cheap, non descript books that I can use in art work.
I would have loved to buy some of the genuine vintage stuff though.

Queen Margaret University

I was at a training day today At QMU in Edinburgh. It is a brand spanking new buliding,
and, I have to say, looks better inside than out!

Spring garden

My borders are beginning to fill out and flower.
See how the white snowball flowers stand out.

and the rhododendrons are blooming.

But it is still windy!!

We visited the botanical gardens at Dawyck, in the Scottish Borders today. It is a beautiful garden with the most magnificent trees.
