Before I went away, we slipped over to the next town’s annual show. I showed you a picture of two, but I’ve found a whole heap more that I thought I’d share.
Apparently they do wood chopping championships here! I did not know that.
These fellows were very, very good at not falling off from their little perch.
Once again, I was thrilled to see the many, many varieties of chickens on show.
This guy = have you ever seen such a smooshy chicken face?
He’s obviously some sort of fancy schmancy rooster given the hoity toity look he was throwing me.
This guy was gorgeous. We lost our silky bantam rooster this year – he was failing but I did think he was a very sweet guy. I keep thinking I should get another one, but I haven’t yet.
My girls dubbed this one Albert. As in Einstein.
Suits him, I think.
Our region has a very large Orchid community and they always put on an excellent show.
Ooops. Not an orchid. But fairly impressive, nonetheless. Can you imagine using this one as a cushion? Oh goodness.
Rows and rows of orchids. They were all very pretty but I’m never going to try growing them. I haven’t the time or the green thumb.
Bonsai however, that would be something I’d love to get involved in. I’ve always loved the bonsai look.
My skill level here is worse than orchid growing, so perhaps it’ll be just another pipe dream.
Told you there were many orchids.
Jams. Chutneys. Sauces. One day I’ll enter something. I can actually DO chutney. Jam, not so much.
And one final orchid photo to show you. I’ve more show posts to share, but don’t want to overload you.
I have a child free house today, and after two weeks of school holidays I’m not really sure what to do with it. I should be doing housework. The girls had taken over my sewing room to do their craft and before I even try to sew I’m going to have to clean it up.
So I should get started, I think.
Bye for now!
