It is pouring with rain therefore it is Show Day – the Walls & District Annual Show.
We were due to enter our four girls (Gwendolinda, Lyra, Carina and Zoot), had practiced, washed and cleaned everything when the decision was made to withdraw all our show entries. There was a conflict of interest (not our fault or problem) and that is all I can say?
The silver lining to my raincloud was meeting Storm’s Mum, Benstonholm Nightshade, who was being shown by her breeder.
She was lovely and I could instantly see they were related – the same eye, the same movement.
Anywho, I went for the morning wandering around with my camera and seeing old friends. Today waterproofs were national dress.
The Show had some fantastic entries in every category imaginable.
Yes, there is a class called Six Potatoes (especially for Simone – get well soon and I hope this makes you smile)
Beautiful newly shorn fleeces in boxes.
Vegetable Creations (Children’s Section) – one of my favourite classes to see.
A Scarecrow? (I think that’s the class).
Article in Woodwork (this was incredible craftsmanship. Beautiful).
Most Unusual Plant – huh? What’s that then?
Miniature Garden (Children Section)
Basket of Heather
This makes me laugh every year.
Who knew there was so many local gentlemen?
Decorated Novelty Sponge
Openwork Shawl – truly awesome. This always takes my breath away.
There were many other exhibits and I looked at as much as I could without becoming drenched.
Maybe next year we will try again.
