Surely one of the highlights of the Summer has to be the County Show! Wherever you are in the world there will be a Summer fete or County fair? This weekend was the Middlesex Show. Let me take you on a whistlestop tour of something quintessentially English...
Here are the lovely ladies from the Hillingdon Allotment and Horticultural Federation
. The South of England Flyball association
had some competitions too! For those that don't know, this is a sort of doggy relay race involving tennis balls!
And Matron was able to indulge her passion for riding in helecopters - yes! I'm mad about helecopters. This is what my home town looks like from the air!
The Old Fashioned Pudding Company were there - how many non-English of you out there knows what a 'Spotted Dick'
looks like? eh?
There was a wonderful display of vintage cars and tractors.
A very fierce lady tried to force me into joining the Womens Institute
The local beekeepers association was there too!
And of course, the highlight must be...drumroll.... the South of England Hamster Show
Is your county fair just as much fun?
