Lambeth Country Show 2012 - part three
Brockwell Park, Herne Hill, London
[Map location] 15th - 16th September 2012
The Flower Zone is billed as offering a 'traditional, friendly and quaint atmosphere,' and contains flower, vegetable, home baking, jam, scarecrow making and recycled garden planting competitions.
The real draw is, of course, the 'vegetable character competition,' and there was a particularly strong showing this year.
Inside the Flower Zone tent.
Crowds gather around the vegetable character competition table.
Fantastic carrot and parsnip-based homage to Anthony Gormley.
Admiring the exhibits.
Jarvis Cocker, or rather 'Harvest Cocker,' was the worthy winner of the Harvest Festival-themed vegetable figure competition.
A rather moving tribute to Terry Nutkins, which garnered praise from a poster on the urban75 forums who observed that the, 'attention to detail was magnificent.'
A pineapple owl.
The Ol-yam-pic rings.
Some of the cakes seemed to have suffered in the heat.
