The Village Show

It was the annual village show last weekend, and I thought you might like to see some pictures.
Prize winning vegetables:-


Not that I can claim credit for any of those, other than the very tiny cherry tomatoes in the centre and a bundle of rhubarb
There were some lovely flowers as well (again none of these are mine)


We did rather better in the Art and Handicrafts section though, winning lots of classes between us as well as three Best in Shows


Mr Penguin, who I've shown on here before won Best in Show - Handicraft


and I got a 1st with this floral arrangement in the class called "Beachcombing"


Eloise got a second place with this life drawing:-


Naomi won the class for Celebration Cake


 and got 1st and 2nd with her pastels (you can see her winning one. of ballet shoes.in this picture)


The large watercolour painting of silver birch trees in mad colours is mine and took Best in Show - Art. I suppose I ought to buy a frame for it...
