I had a special treat for my birthday this year, Linda took me to the Burwarton Agricultural show. It was full of things I don’t normally see in Vancouver. There were lots of animals, perfectly combed and polished, there were vegetables matched in sets and loads of interesting displays and demonstrations of just about anything you can imagine.
The finer points of sheep may have been lost on me but the judges and competitors took the competitions very seriously! It was pouring rain when these sheep were judged, but nobody moved even a hair out of line.
When the rain got a bit heavy we made a run for some of the marquee’s. This one was full of perfect vegetables! There was the longest carrot competition, the best matched cabbages and cakes, lots and lots of cakes.
It was a wonderful day and one of the best birthday treats I can think of, thanks Linda! There are a few more images of our day at the fair on Linda’s blog or there will be soon.
Talk to you soon, Catherine
