Here in the outback, August is the month of 'The Show' Practically every village hosts it's own local 'Do' ......... Sort of a grand last fling of summer! John over at http://disasterfilm.blogspot.com/2011/08/show-2011.html has just posted a brilliant photographic blog post of their local one. So John if you read this - just when you thought it was all over (humble apologies), but here comes another!
I mentioned that our grand daughter was staying with us for her holiday, well yesterday, just the two of us - took ourselves off to Shrewsbury Flower Show. This is an annual event, the show, I mean, but something we don't go to every year - you know how you tend to think - seen it all before - been there done that - same old tents blah, blah blah. But we had a great day out together! Here are some of the pics I took!
We tasted all the culinary samples in the food hall and washed it down with Damson Gin and Toffee Vodka - well in truth, only a thimbleful of each. We collected goody bags of magazines and free seeds from the Garden News Stall. We watched the various performances taking place on the village green and chilled out in the Dingle Gardens.
So to everybody who puts so much effort into putting together all these shows - Village Hall or Town Event - I just want to say a great big Thank You! You're cool!
