However, before breakfast and the flower show, Tilly and I had another walk round the newly harvested field. During the course of yesterday, the rows of billowing straw were baled up into giant cotton reels.
In the background of the photograph below you can just see the purple heather on the Lammermuir Hills.So to the flower show. I am not entirely sure what this creation was depicting, but it seems to have won no less than two trophies!
This was my favourite. These jolly folk are just part of a long line of characters!
No village flower show would be complete without an obese leek, and I can't imagine that they could come much bigger than this one. You could feed a small family for a week with this exhibit!
There were some pretty decent cakes, scones and tea loaves in the home baking category. And Border tarts - a rather delicious creation comprising dried fruit, nuts, orange rind and cinnamon, mixed with dark brown sugar and butter and cooked in a pastry case, with a thin coating of icing on top. Delish!
It wasn't a big show, but enjoyable (especially the butterfly cakes), and more importantly, very reassuring!
