I rather like horticulatural shows... Although I saw the schedule for this one in advance I didn't enter any of the classes.
This was a very small village show but had the usual "biggest and best" classes - the flowers ...
and the veg
As ever I was distracted by the chippy paint on the marquee poles.
One of the flower arranging classes was "Granny's attic" which had the grand total of 3 entries - two were inspired by old kitchen scales which were lovely but did make me wonder whether I couldn't have submitted an entry given all my treasures to use as inspiration!
Its always fun for the children to have a class to enter and
so here's an idea for all those with surplus veg in their gardens right now!
I particularly liked the arrangements in tea cups
simple but effective
and they seemed to be flowers from the owners' gardens rather some of the larger displays which had clealry had a lot of money spent on them
but what do I know - I rarely agree with the judges choice! They sometimes seem overly critical for what is supposed to be a bit of fun - or is it?
Anyway if you're wondering what to do with a spare marrow - use the picture below for inspiration and stuff it with flowers!
