People were surprised to see me when I appeared at Bakewell shortly before 8am on Sunday.  The thing they didn't know was that my wife and I had decided to take the opportunity to spend the weekend with my mother-in-law in Nottingham, and they were happy for me to leave them together for the day on Sunday.  So instead of a gruelling 3-4 hour journey, I had left at a relatively civilised time, and had a pleasant trip across the hills on a delightful summer morning.

Having arrived unusually early, I was able to stage a few plants, wander round the sales tables, and return to the show area to take a few pictures of the show benches whilst judging was in progress.  As you can see, the judges and stewards were working fast.  There was one strange and unusual hazard on this occasion.  Lawrence Peet, who was stewarding, was wearing a beautiful, but rather eye-catching polo shirt, and kept on appearing in the background of these shots.
