With loving care


A selection of some of the entries into the Horticulture and Handicrafts sections of Bingley Show 2013. As popular as ever, these sections showcase the hobbies of local people - growing vegetables, flowers and fruit, flower arranging, jam making, baking, knitting, sewing and other crafts, and photography too. It's amazing to see what people produce. There's an awful lot of talent out there and I think it's good that the Show still includes these traditional areas. I really like looking at enormous leeks and carefully selected gooseberries. Really.... I do!

  2. Is that sweet-peas I see in the jars? and beautiful leeks already to make into Leek & Potato Soup. As a teenager I used to enter my Dad's vegetables into the local Agricultural Show .... he usually won prizes and let me keep the prize-money.... a win / win situation.
