Our hot summer caused concern for the organisers of the West End, Windlesham and District Agricultural and Horticultural Society’s annual show [WEWDAHS for short] that there’d be a shortage of produce exhibits – vegetables and things having ripened weeks ago.
The hot summer will have had an effect on exhibits, but not so you’d notice. The flowers were spectacular, the tomatoes looked luscious, the wine, sloe gin, and fruit gin looked quaff-able, and the preserves suitable for my breakfast toast.
Elsewhere in the show the craft exhibits, photographs, paintings, and children’s work were gazed at by the visitors. You might want to know how my cacti performed in Class 33. Well, not too badly, one was given third prize. It now gets a prized position on the dining room window sill.
