On Sunday we went the Malvern Autumn Show. We had a great day out and saw lots of interesting things, so I thought I’d share some with you.
There were lots of gardening exhibits, show gardens and seed stalls. Chris Beardshaw did a talk and there was even a jazz band and stunt show! There was also lots of animals there, rare breed pigs, cows, horses and dogs. Including miniature donkeys! When I saw this though I had to take a photo of it; The Webb Miniature, a lawnmower for children. Ahhh… The Victorians – they didn’t have EU safety laws did they?
Above is the winning show garden in the ‘Good Life’ pavillion (ie the ‘grow your own’ bit). I thought it was very neat. Although, aren’t those ornamental Cabbages?
Above is the show vegetables stand from seed merchants, Thompson & Morgan. I’m always amazed at how decorative show growers can make their veg look. And how do you prepare Onions like that?
There were tons of colourful vintage tractors which kept the little (and not so little one) happy.
And the new thing on my ‘must have’ list – a vintage caravan. Some of them were just perfect, inside and out.
And the people who owned them looked like they were having such fun.
And of course, not forgetting this year’s ‘Young Farmer of the Year’ – who felt it was his job to inspect the harvest.
Particularly, since there was a rather smart looking tractor in the middle of the display!
