The show is very sweet and showcases cut flowers, potted plants, floral art and cookery entries. There is a kitchen in the hall which sells cakes with tea and coffee. I have a feeling that scones with jam and cream may be available too. It is sad to think that in the future shows like this may not exist anymore.
We shall start with some food related photos. One of the floral art divisions was 'food' themed. A junior member made a penguin out of an eggplant and I was particularly interested in the cookery. To finish, some photos of the flowers.
Isn't this clever?:)
Lammingtons, biscuits, chocolate crackles
Mmmm fruit cake. I really need to bake one of them. Pumpkin scones which I have never tried. Have you tried them?
Anzac biscuits and slices.
A few years ago, I was addicted to baking Anzac biscuits. I remember I baked some to share at a house party in Germany. One boy there ate pretty much the whole lot and then asked for the recipe so he could replicate them at home:) He was so amazed by them! I thought it was funny.
The Anzac biscuit party mentioned above was not the party where my drink of water was spiked. I believe that at one certain party some moron spiked my drink. I was on drugs and unaware of it! Not good. I am a good girl who doesn't even drink coffee or tea because of the caffeine! I have the last laugh however; I know that whoever spiked my drink will always be a no-hoper moron:) I probably told you this story before, but I told you again for 'moron awareness'. Nothing like awareness! Moral of the story is: Don't go to parties; watch Heartbeat on Saturday night instead.
And now, some flowers.
Chrysanthemum (my dad tool an active involvement in my early learning and I was spelling this at age 6. He also taught me to recite the elements from Hydrogen to Calcium at age 7)
That was the show:) I should enter something in the cookery division next time. I know I would go home empty handed but I could receive some great tips from the experts. Have you ever entered a cookery competition?
