Clever Fruit and Veg

We recently went to a Thai Festival here in Surrey and although I spent much of my time eating lovely Thai food and browsing the stalls (next post!!!) I did manage to stop and smell the roses - well - look at some vegetables - but wow - they were real show stoppers!!! How clever is this chap? I had a really wonderful chat with him - he explained how he now creates many centre pieces for weddings! This lady was just amazing. Imagine doing this with a melon? Or this for Halloween! Think I better practice my carving skills. TTFN xxxx

  6. Those are incredible - I didn't know that this form of art existed! Thanks for sharing those amazing photos.

    I'm giving away some French homes and gardens magazines with pretty pictures if you'd like to pop over...

  11. That is just amazing, and at the same time the mind boggles at having that much time and concentration.

  12. I think I'd jump a mile high if I came home to that pumpkin on our path. Too too scary. Amazing what people can do with veg though.
