Brace yourself - I have a lot of pictures to show you...
Last weekend, I spent a couple of days in the beautiful village of Burley in the New Forest. Every year, they put on the Burley Show, which I was delighted to discover is as close as one can get to a village fair in this day and age. It was a day of vegetable and cake-baking competitions, tombola's, tractor displays and - my personal favourite - dog shows. There was even a very impressive falconry display from the Rutland Falconry and Owl Centre! What more could you possible want from a day out?
Following the show, we all went back to my bearded man's father's house to celebrate his wedding anniversary. They have the most beautiful garden, so I couldn't resist taking a few arty snaps of the incredible flowers and set up they have there.
If you've never been to the New Forest, I highly recommend a visit. Not only is it beautiful, but horses basically own the place and walk around completely freely! They also have some very tasty fudge.
How was your weekend?
