The schedule arrived today for the local horticultural show (Saturday 18th September 2004, Cochrane Hall, Alva). Dan and I joined this year for the princely sum of £2 each. We're planning to exhibit in at least a few classes each. It's all quite serious - there a loads of rules about what you can and cannot do, but apparently exhibitors come from far and wide. For a top prize of £8 (for a hanging basket), that's pretty dedicated.

I'm focussing on the Baking and Preserves section so we'll have scones coming out of our ears, as practice gets into full swing.

The Society is quite old - established in 1835 - and boasts a fair selection of trophies. Dan's offered to do a website for the Society, so watch this space. I don't know if anyone's researched the history of the Society, but it would be quite interesting to do so. I'll add it to my retirement "To Do" list....
