Ponies and pansies
The Tarland show has something for everyone; prize-winning ponies in the morning (as well as an excellent homemade cake and jam stall; I snaffled lemon drizzle cake, and three different kinds of jam -- gooseberry, blackcurrant and raspberry). Then in the afternoon, the spectacular Tarland flower show in the MacRobert hall. The sweetpeas were prettier than a picture, the vegetables magnificent, and the home-baked gypsy creams as good as they get. Who could ask for anything more?
