Jam and Jerusalem

Last Sunday my family and I visited a quintessentially English end of summer fair.  It was just like stepping back in time where all the neighbours came together to sell jam and cakes and the children raced rubber ducks down the creek. 





There always seems to be owls at these things...isn't this little one sweet?



The air was full of music from an old fashion organ grinder to the accordion from the Morris dancing.





These 2 pups were awaiting judgement for their performance in a dog show.



And I think this calf was as intrigued by the lady and the big black camera as the lady with the camera was of him! :o)
Until next time...

Oh. How I'd love to be able to go to an English Faire! Looks like it was wonderful -- your pictures are certainly fabulous! I had to laugh at the cow picture -- he's looking very hip with those pierced ears!
