|Happy crowds enjoying activities at the Malvern Autumn Show|
We are here again on the Three Counties Showground in the lee of the Malvern Hills, enjoying a day of sunshine. The occasion? The Malvern Autumn Show. So much to see, but I make a beeline for the 'edible display gardens' in the Good Life Pavilion. As the catalogue explains: ‘The Good life is all about sowing, growing and cooking, with fresh wholesome food harvested from the garden, for a healthier, happier lifestyle. It’s about enjoying and preserving a year-round, regular supply of fruit, vegetables and herbs, or keeping chickens and rearing livestock on a small scale.”

|So much winter colour in the cabbage patch|

|Such a clever concept; which struck a cord with older visitors|
Although Dobies were not exhibiting this year, don't forget to check the Dobies website for plants and seeds. For a start, look at Vegetables, Salads, Herbs, Planters, Raised Beds, Equipment, and so on. In other words, time to plan for the coming season.
And a date for your diary: the Malvern 2013 Spring Garden Show - a feast for the eyes, with more stunning Show Gardens.
