Puppets and Flags at Traquair Fair

We went to Traquair Fair today, which takes place at Traquair House in Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders.

There is a mythical Traquair Fair in my mind, where the sun shines brightly all day and I get gently sunburnt sitting in the orchard listening to the music. This happened once, most times we've been to the Fair it has rained constantly and today was no exception. However we still had a lovely time. We enjoyed meeting these puppets:





and these flags brightened up the day:


and we enjoyed beer brewed in the Traquair Brewery and a pizza baked in this oven:

The orchard is lovely, and you can see photos of the apple trees and lichens over on Crafty Green Poet here.

Looks as though you had plenty to keep you smiling through the damp weather. Nice pictures.

The mythical fair weather sound as if it is from the same stables as those endless blue summers of my childhood (considering, I spent them in Langholm they were likely very wet)

Classy bunting :)
