I only left my stand to get a bit of fresh air and take a walk with Sarah and Suzy who came to visit the show today. I wasn't quite expecting to find so much visual inspiration in the fruit and veg marquee.
But there it was all laid out for us. All this carefully tended fruit and veg, scrubbed and presented like they were the finest jewels.
We marveled at the onions
sitting on their little cushions with their hair in top knots!
And we squealed at the gooseberries
cherries, strawberries and raspberries making patterns on their plates.
There were even goosberries on shelves holding up their medals with pride!
Seeing it all displayed this way made it seem like art.
And the surface pattern designer in me was drooling at the possibilities.
I am happy that I can get excited about these small things in life..
and that I have friends who do the same! :)
After this we went to visit the Allium man (ahhhh)....that is a whole other blog post for another day!
