Today there was a bonus because we got to walk through the lower level of the Tropical Ravine.
Instead of looking down on the plants I was looking up through the canopy.
I was able to walk along the winding paths, it was like I was in the jungle.
....and there was this plant with nicely patterned leaves.
This lady made me up a wild boar burger, I could have had a crocodile burger. How exotic.
In the show tent there were exhibits of enormous vegetables & fruit, prize blooms, bonsai, alpines, honey, cakes, biscuits, scones, confectionary, wines & liqueurs, handicrafts - so much to look at.
Pumpkins so big they were splitting.
This was an exhibit in the Flower Arranging section.
I thought it looked like the background was made of woven leaves.
Of all the things I saw today, this impressed me the most. I could see the amount of work and thought that had gone in to making it. It was lovely, like something I could transfer to stitch.
This is the whole piece.
