Glorious Gardens…

Posted on Updated on

It’s no secret that Robert Burns loved nature, and we at RBBM are very proud of the wonderful gardens that are part of our site. Last weekend’s ‘Glorious Gardens’ event showcased the fantastic work of our gardeners, as well as providing many other exciting activities for all the family.

The museum foyer played host to a variety of craft stalls, and we were even visited by some bees… every garden’s best friend!

Meanwhile, our regular Farmer’s Market was in full swing in the Robertson Room…

…and our learning team were running a stone painting stall for the bairns, although in house rivalries were quickly becoming apparent. The debate over who can paint the best ladybird still rages!

Add this to the garden tours, led by our head gardener David, and our regular weekend Highlight Tours of the museum and cottage, and it’s safe to say that there was plenty to keep people occupied.

We hope all our visitors enjoyed the day, and would like to thank everybody who was involved in making the event such a success.
