There will be a perfect opportunity to show off your best home-grown produce next month.

Redbourn in Bloom will be holding a Grand Autumn Show on Saturday, September 15, at Redbourn village hall from 2.15pm to 5pm.

RiB chairman Pat Schofield said: “This is an opportunity for gardeners and allotment holders to show off their prized vegetables, fruit and flowers.”

There will be novelty classes and children’s sections.

There will also be craft and home-baking sections.

Free schedules, with all the details and entry forms, are available from Redbourn Post Office, the library, Arrangements and Hertfordshire Garden Centre.

The deadline for entries is September 12.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
