In fairness on Friday I was not suitably dressed for the summer weather as from past experience I was fully prepared with big boots and a woolly top so it's no surprise I was over heating.
However, we couldn't have wished to be in a lovelier location on such a hot day. Although only a short distance from where I live in Glasgow, I had never been to Viewpark Gardens before and was pleasantly surprised. It is an oasis of foliage and wildlife in amongst houses and busy roads.
Even with all the crowds there were some peaceful spots just to take some time out and enjoy the surroundings.
The festival encourages local families to come along and experience the lovely greenery on their doorstep. With entertainment, a tea room, craft tent and children's rides there was plenty to keep everyone busy.
