It is my considered opinion that all archaeological fieldwork, regardless of location or time of year, should start off with ice cream. This goes double for blog posts. I present to you the Artist’s Palette (four scoops of ice cream plus a selection of toppings, sauce, and wafers) from Drummuir Farm Ice Cream Parlour.
Counter clockwise from the bottom left, I indulged in Coconut, Blueberry, Mint Chocolate Chip, and Butterscotch. My favourite was the Blueberry, and altogether it was the nicest dessert ever. (The lentil soup I had beforehand was also gorgeous. I heartily recommend visiting the parlour if you’re ever in the Dumfries area. In fact, it would be a downright shame if you missed it!)
