This afternoon I ran a creative writing workshop at Gorgie City Farm. I had got up this morning and looked out the window with a bit of a sinking heart to see all the grey clouds, but by this afternoon it was beautifully sunny which meant we could have a lovely wander round the farm before starting to write. The farm pond was full of frogs sitting motionless in the water. The bunnies were all in their shed, which meant we only got a glimpse of Driftwood and didn't see any of the others. Red the horse was wandering round the field, totally unconcerned about the jackdaws on his back.
The workshop participants wrote some lovely pieces and enjoyed visiting the farm. I made some notes for writing a piece about house sparrows, after watching these birds in the farm hedges!
Then I bought some fruit and veg at the farm's lovely produce stall.
