"David, I used to raise money for a charity with my Vic sponge, I used to make them and people would donate,mi raised about £500 altogether and have been told they are very good (not my words someone else's)."

If only I were so modest! ....I would say that it helps that I make my own raspberry jam from my own grown raspberries.

What will you be showing David? There is no way of writing that without it sounding like an inuendo! ;p

 

Last year I came first with my tomatoes in the redcurrant class.

Believe it or not, one of my biggest successes is with my Victoria Sponge......and those WI sorts really don't like it up em.

Seriously, the standard is nothing like Chelsea or Hampton Court....just enter a few roses or sweet peas....you'll need a show schedule though.

Sorry, OL   Even if it's a tad morbid, I still think there is something (as you say) beautiful about it.

It's getting near to the village show time of year again and if anyone would like to have a bash, I can assure you it's really good fun.

This is a slideshow of one near to me, where I sometimes judge.

Oh no, rosemummy....it's your expectations that keep you going.

Perhaps we can gear your plantings around your garden next year.

Another little sonnet to add a little joviality to the thread.

"Do not stand at my grave and weep

I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die."                             

I need hugs too....
