Edinburgh Canal festival

Today was Edinburgh Canal Festival and for once the weather was good for it (I remember in previous years getting caught in torrential rain in the middle of the festival).

There are plenty of stalls selling food and drink and advertising local community organisations.

There are also boat trips, kayaking and a raft race, with all rafts being made from upcycled materials.

After we had wandered round the festival we walked further along the canal.

The tufted vetch is looking lovely at the minute

and the common carder bees were enjoying the flowers of the meadow vetchlings

We also made friends with a spaniel hanging out of its window here

and wished these young ducklings all the best

Mother duck may have her hands full with these ten!

For 30 Days Wild
