Kathy and I went to the Show last weekend, just before it ended for another year, and we had a great old time. We indulged ourselves in all the things we like to do, and ignored the sideshows, the rides and the showbags. This means that we spent most of the afternoon wandering around the plant pavilion, the craft, the food, the cooking and preserves and most of all the animals. It was great to see all those stalls of placid cows, to chat to the animal science students who were looking after the pigs and to check out the goats, the chooks, the sheep and so on.
We also made a point of tracking down the prize winning exhibits of some folk we know. Mary Heath had some beautiful spinning that won prizes (click to enlarge the pics below)(if they’d had a slipper section she would have been a shoe in (sorry!)),
and Caitlin, Kathy’s niece, had a victory in the 7 year old art section, with a fabulous picture of a peacock.
I love seeing all that people do and make and grow – their industry and creativity are wonderful. I might have a go one year myself!
I took quite a few pics – here is a selection.
