Katanning show held last weekend 24th October 2015

This was the first time we have attended Katanning show for 6 years.

The first thing we noticed was that the Great Southern Iris Championship was not held.

This was due to the dry and hot conditions we have been experiencing.

This has made the flowering season not as good as in previous years.

We also had a stall there to sell our plants and craft things.

We found that the crowd was not what was expected.

People are not spending what they would have in past years .

Things are tight in Australia just now and people are finding it hard to meet their commitments

resulting in hard times for the stall holders.

The dry winter is starting to have dire consequences with our farmers as well.

We can only hope for a better show next year.
