We waited and waited. Serious competitors turned up, people ran in a Crufts kind of way beside their dogs and we started to think maybe this wasn't going to be the fun thing we thought it would be. After an hour No 1 class hadn't even finished, so we decided Alfie was a star for us and we needed to go and get on with our Sunday somewhere else.
As we walked past the pond some of the ducks followed us as usual, but we hadn't brought food with us today.
Success - happiness is a yummy 99.
No icecream for me today, but I did get these beautiful sweetpeas on the walk back. Cornflowers, sweet williams and sweetpeas are also there to choose from for only 70p a bunch. The scent from them is delicious. I think some more cornflowers tomorrow.
I was given some cornflowers this week by a bloggy visitor who came for cake and to chat. Teena also kindly brought me some apple juice (pressed from their own fruit no less) and homemade crab apple jelly. I must ask for the recipe as I end up sweeping our crab apples up each year, not knowing what to do with them.
