Mt. Albert Sports Day on the Horticultural Side



. Sports Day collage

Yesterday was Sports Day in Mt. Albert, an annual fair day the first weekend in June.  There are rides and baseball games, games and prizes, a petting zoo, lots of good food and on the Horticultural end there is the baking contest and the flower show.  Our Horticulture Society helps out in the main community centre where the baking contest and the flower show are held.  

In the hall you will find beautiful flowers from community members gardens and arrangements of flowers that will be judged and given ribbons.  Money is allotted the winners.  Here I gave you a sample of the things on display.  The kids get involved with flower arrangements with a specific theme and decorated cupcakes.  They were very imaginative.  There was a lot of  good conversation over the plant tables The two crust pie was a bumbleberry pie and baked by moi.   I got a first prize.  A great day all round.

I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I hope you have a great week.

What a fun time at the fair. The baking and flower show would be the attraction for me. But, I am like a kid when it comes to the petting zoo. Congrats on winning first prize for your pie. Have a happy week ahead.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
