Third prize for my carrots, was pretty pleased with that!
Second prize for my peas, was very pleased with that as we hadn't had any peas last week as I was saving them all for a good picking on Friday so that I had the best of the crop to pick from. It was worth the wait as there were 7 or 8 entries, so I was pleased as punch with that result.
First prize for my photography, a picture of a castle. The picture was of Fortar Castle which is up in Glen Isla. I've won first prize for photography before at the Alyth Show so the pressure's on for next year!
And then the most amazing results of all were.......
First prize for my raspberry jam........
....and first prize for my orange marmalade! I was glued to the spot for about 5 minutes staring at the prize cards as I just could not believe it. I think I went back over about three times before I really took it in! To say that I was chuffed is a bit of an understatment, I was grinning like a Cheshire cat all afternoon!
I didn't get anything for my flowers, which ended up all from my own garden as I didn't get to Johns. Anyway, since writing the last post I have since found out that using flowers that aren't grown by yourself isn't the done thing as it's not actually about the arranging it's more about the content, so next year I'll just have to have my own sweet peas on better form!
I also got a third in the crafts section, a very cheeky entry that I put in for the "bag for life" section, really mine was more of a hand bag rather than a shopper, but it's the taking part that counts!
So, all in all it was a pretty amazing day, we took part in the World Bale Rolling Competition and Tug O'War so lots of fun was had. Roll on next year!! xx
