    Hi Nora B - It was a gorgeous day yesterday. There was a mention of it in Good Living but none in the Saturday SMH Planner.

    Hi aptronym - We did notice the Caring Funerals stall but nah, I didn't get a show bag. Lots of pet stalls too. You got some yummy photos as well :)

    Hi chocolatesuze - I think it was just coloured edible foil. Pretty hey.

    Hi Hillary - I presume you mean this cabbage photo, but yes, I do take lots of photos. And these are just the ones that made the cull!

    Hi Papa Lazarou - It was a lovely day indeed. Shame you didn't realise this was on. Plenty of others did though. The crowds were quite enormous!

    It was such a lovely day. So many people and doggies about. Was very thankful when I got the free cap from the club.
