It was hot work watching the show jumping on the hottest day of the year. Gallons of sum cream were no doubt used.

At the New forest show. I went to the bee keepers tent. I’m,as you know more than interested in our little friends. I got to see how the traditional beehives are made. They really are a work of art.

You can have a look at the post I wrote earlier this year about my visit to a beekeeper .here .Also see what a traditional skep like  the one above looks like when the bees are finished.

At the New forest show on what must have been the hottest day this year I saw a stand by a local funeral director. I was surprised by the diversity of choice and admit to a little morbid fascination.
A little macabre. But what a cool way for a cycle enthusiast to go to his or her last resting place. No emissions and even the coffin is a thick blanket like material.
