me on Monday

a big wave to everyone whether you are at home or on holiday (or indeed somewhere else).

The summer festival season in Edinburgh started with flare this weekend. 

On Saturday I enjoyed some free toe-tapping as jazz musicians entertained on 4 stages.  A great array of jazz styles and a chance to see some more unusual musical instruments


Then on Sunday a carnival parade along the main street with masses of drummers and fabulous head dresses (and a very cute little girl) – I collaged some together


great to see so many people enjoying the music and the spectacle – which continued with performances in the park until rain sent us under trees for shelter and then home. 

At home a satisfying fruit picking session in my back garden means I wont need to buy any fruit this week – I also have a nice stash of raspberry conserve after going to a fruit picking farm during the week.

Wishing you all a good week with some toe tapping

Neat photo collage - it was hard to tell that it was 3 different photos, well done. There is a huge Caribbean Canaveral in Toronto in August every year and the costumes are similar. Any fruit in my garden is snatched first by chipmunks, bunnies and squirrels.

It's good to be back and catching up with my you a big one across the pile of my holiday unpacking! That's an amazing looking parade said...

Woah, how impressive are those figures - and the angle you've taken it from makes them even more so. Now, that sounds like a great weekend, with jam on it as my DS used to say!
