Wimborne Folk Festival this weekend and with weather remaining warm and sunny combined with some excellent music - not a bad event at all.   The children appear to have had a good night last night  - I found the Son in our Summerhouse this morning - not sure exactly what time he got in and the Daughter has only just got up.


I love how this lady's hat matched her hair
