Shrewsbury Agricultural Show

A Museum summer party at Ironbridge (of which I could, but won't, post embarrasing pictures of people dancing), followed by a gentle and fragile day on Saturday. Although we did help Alison with her new sofa and bought and moved some fence panels. Sunday we went to Shrewsbury for the West Mid Show, the highlight of the year for the Shropshire and West Midlands Agricultural Society. Here are some random assorted agricultural photographs...

Makes a very pleasant change from pictures of industrial ruins! Don't worry, normal service will be resumed shortly. Hello to Yann!
