>>> Garden Show! <<<

Woke up to a glorious day and hubby decided to go to the Garden Show at Kings Heath. We have been going there every year and even though I'm no gardener myself, was suitably impressed by the dedication of the gardeners with their effort to produce the most amazing fruits/vegetables. We saw gigantic vegetables, huge flowers and well decorated gardens. Amazing!!!

The kids were not left out too as there was a craft tent and they both had a go at painting some animal ceramic. Ollie chose a dinosaur while Zac took a monkey. Ollie did a brillant job at his and Zac wanted his elephant pink!
Later they had a go at sculpturing some clay and with the help of daddy, made a dinosaur and a bowl. Then they went on a donkey ride too. Both really enjoyed themselves a fair bit.

We didn't get much plants apart from a hanging basket plant that looked half dead by the time we brought it home... somehow ribena juice fell on it and it was sticky and awful! Hubby got me one of those collapsable basket rollers which I put it in the boot of the car as they are brillant for holding items that have a tendency to roll about in the boot!

On the creative side, managed to finish a LO early this morning! Well had no choice as it was for an assignment. Made use of the Li'l Davis glitter paint and boy do I love it!!! Gosh they give new lease of life to chipboards! Had a look into my July Homegrown kit and played with some of the stash in there!
