Every fruit and veg show has to have a lady in a big hat, and here she is.
She was handing out the silverware to the prizewinners. I rather suspect one village gentleman must have a very large mantelpiece or corner cabinet because he was the sole exhibitor in a few categories and must have staggered away from the proceedings with a considerable haul!
Only one in five of us uses leaf tea these days. That statistic includes our household. We don't hold with tea bags, unless it's a fruity one! I find the category of knitted tea cosy particularly charming but can't help wondering how much longer the teapot is going to be needing it's woolly pullover before the tea bag attains world domination.
The blue pansy in this last photo reminds me of those glowing Art Deco pictures made with butterfly wings.
