It was the Horticultural Society annual show yesterday. Miserable drizzly wet day, but we still had quite a good turn out.
Look at these wonderful veggies, no surprise that they won the "best in show" (No, I didn't grow them, wish I had though)

And here is a little corner of the floral art and cookery sections.
Eloise won the cup for "Best in Show Floral Art" and a prize for her painting, and Naomi got "Most points - Cookery" and a gold medal for her Mini Tray of Flowers and Vegetables.
I picked up a couple of firsts with various handcrafted items, but I'll save them for another post.

What gorgeous veggies

Our soil is such heavy clay, I cannot imagine pulling out such perfect, long roots.

Am waiting to see pictures of these other winning entries

How fun is that? Those are the most perfect vegetables I've ever seen. EVER.

The vegetables really are beautiful! And, so are the flowers.

I can't wait to see your handcrafted items that brought you first place!

We are in full show flurry around us at the moment. Been to 2 so far and still got 2 to do. They are a great way of gaining inspiration too. I've done well with my sewing & baking sop far at mine, can't wait to see your pics

I love visiting the local shows and like you get inspired by all that I see. We have our W.I. show next week and it is a lovely social affair. Congratulations to your daughters for winning prizes and look forward to seeing what you entered.

Thank you for sharing.
