The second day of Dundee’s Flower and Food Festival got off to a busy start, with the alpaca enclosure proving to be particularly popular.
Children and adults alike got to meet the animals and have their photos taken with them, before taking part in various cooking demos and gardening events.
Christine Walkden, a horticulturist best known for her appearances on The One Show, as well as her own programme Christine’s Garden, held a question and answer session about all things gardening.

Anne Rendall, neighbourhood services convener has been helping oversee the running of this year’s event and said visitor numbers appeared to be good after a successful opening day on Friday.
She added: “From what I could see, it has been very busy and people are really enjoying the different things that are on offer.
“Christine Walkden’s question and answer event was packed out and she was very good, really taking the time to answer everybody.
“Another very popular attraction was the alpaca enclosure. The children simply loved them and were all getting photos with them.
“One of my initiatives this year was to have a cultural expo at Camperdown House to showcase all the great things in Dundee such as the McManus, the upcoming V&A opening and DC Thomson’s work.
“There has been a steady stream of people going in and out of Camperdown House and so far the feedback has been good.”
