What a lovely day. The weather was super- the sun shone all day, it was warm but not hot and there was a slight breeze.
The stand we have is just inside the Art and design marquis, so we had the benefit of fresh air coming in. I can imagine it might not have been so pleasant on a cooler day, but lovely just now.
As soon as the gates opened to the show, people streamed in and there seemed to be a constant flow of interested visitors during the whole day.
I had decided to demonstrate botanical art using coloured pencil. This worked out well and was obviously the right choice as it attracted quite a few people to the stand. I had loads of questions and this also meant that they looked a little more closely at the pictures than they might have done. I also found out that Irises are in fact a flower that is much appreciated.
This evening has been spent with stocking up again and now a very slightly earlier night than usual.
