May Bank Holiday Weekend

What fantastic weather we have had for the last fews days! Suddenly we have had blue skies and warm temperatures, so much so that I even abandoned wearing socks yesterday! Being a Bank Holiday, we went on a family outing to a local village show that we haven't been to before. This was held in the lovely village of Dilwyn only a few miles from home. It wasn't a large event but it had plenty to keep us entertained for a few hours.

It had the usual selection of food stalls, a craft marque where I bought a lovely needlefelted picture of some sheep, classic cars, vintage tractors and ponies etc. Hopefully next year we will be taking some of our classic cars along too.

By the dog show area I got chatting to a nice lady about her dog which turned out to be a puppy of a breed I hadn't come across before. Basset Fauvre de Bretagne or Fawn Dog of Brittany. He was a super chap and very friendly with the lovely name of Woody. Here he is.

And here is his chum whose name I can't remember, but he is a Standard Wirehaired Dachshund. Another beautiful dog and much bigger than the Dachshunds you normally see out and about.
I have also managed this weekend to begin washing fleeces and get them dry outside in the sunshine. I will do a post on this later this week. I'm afraid the weather looks like rain for tomorrow which is a shame as I'm visiting the lambs and hoped to have nice weather for it. Ah well, I knew it wouldn't last! I'll finish this post with a shot of the flowering currant and forsythia bushes in my garden. They are full of flowers and the bumble bees are enjoying them. Hope your Bank Holiday was a good one too!
