The Day I Went to the Show


On Wednesday I went to the Vale of Glamorgan Country Show.(Oddbillie, Hywel and a few more of you will know where that is). The sun shone, quite rare on show day I hear. I came home a little pinker than I went after 9hrs.

This is the first friend I made.(Shaggy)

Followed by this one (The Great I Ram)

Some saw it as time for a snooze. (Perky and co.)

So next it was on to the Horticultural Tent.

These look a little too perfect for me. More M&S than Tesco

This little garden looks very managable. Maybe the perfect thing if you live in a trendy apartment.

Or grow your flowers in a welly or any old boot for that matter.

It’s time for lunch now lots of healthy eating on offer so how about sausage,chips and an ice cream.

The day is young there’s still lots to do and don’t forget buy sweets for Hubby whose stuck in work.
Saw some important people like a National Assembly member, A Mayor and a councillor oh yes and a ferret on a lead.

“Should you be in here?”

Should we bee going in there?

Can you guess which one is Me?

Nearly time to go home just time for some donuts and a little showjumping.

“Up you get mate we could win this.”

Gonna have to go home soon there’s housework to be done.

What a Great day. Now I really gotta FLY.

B mi B mi Baby.

Hi GG, fantastic blog,
Loved the pics. Hope my daughter doesn't see the ferret on a leash! (She is after one but they are illegal in Queensland). Our local show is on next month so I will get a few shots there for a blog. Cheers for now, Jaffa x
