Lunch at Buchanan Bistro just on the outskirts of Banchory today. The first time either of us had ever been there. Also bought a couple of jars from the delicatessen, some chilli sauce from Italy, and garlic cloves from Spain.
We then made a quick visit to the walled garden at Crathes to see how the plants are doing after the rain. The gardeners were busy healing a trees and tidying the topiary.
