We went to Tree Fest today, Edinburgh's annual celebration of trees in Inverleith Park, run by the Four Winds Centre. It was drizzly all day but the rain never got heavy enough to drive people away, though there were probably fewer people there than usual. A lovely addition to the event this year was the display of working horses, brought up from Durham in the north of England. There was a lovely Shetland pony and a larger mixed breed working horse, both very friendly and busy demonstrating dragging wood and beating bracken. There were lots of nice wood related things on sale and stalls from environmental charities and lots of nice food stalls, including Bespoke Organic Events, who were also selling our favourite raspberry jam from the Cyrenians Organic Farm. There was a music stage and a beer tent, selling local ales, beer and music next to each other unlike other occasions. We both forgot to take our cameras so no photos, sorry!
Tree Fest continues tomorrow, when it clashes with the Gorgie Farm Fun Day and the Water of Leith Sponsored Ramble.
