Ann's Flower Show 2012

Well , whereas today's first blog entry concentrated upon the more emotional, cry baby things of life, this "follow up" is just a brief sharing of a day spent at the Prestatyn Flower Show 
My Sister's Flower Show is as usual, a somewhat impressive and professionally staged affair
(especially when it is compared to our more amateur bun fight)
Here's hoping that the entries in our show are half as good as the ones I saw today


Anyhow, I spent several hours sitting in the Vicarage Gardens handing out our Flower Show schedules to anyone that may be interested in entering our show.
I shared too many ham rolls and chicken crisps with Meg and George and I met the rather sweet "Going Gently" blog reader Hannah and her boyfriend ( not to be confused with Hannah and Her Sisters) who live in Trelawnyd 's posh neighbour village of Llanasa
It was nice to meet you both!

  5. What a lovely show. It looks like the color version of old, black and white, Township Community Day programs from the twenties. There was a category in them for best child's boquet. Bet you had one of those, too.

  17. I'm wondering if I could start a flower show here. I have access to a location where there's a lot of traffic, and it looks like it would be a way for residents here to get together for an occasion that doesn't involve spitting and roasting our snivel servants for whatever stupid idea they've concocted for our community.
