Bosoms comes up trumps


Before our own flower show here in Trelawnyd, there is the much grander and comprehensive Flower Show down in Prestatyn to contend with. My elder sister Ann, runs this show , and has done for years, so today, is the day that I have to prepare my entries. Tomorrow the show opens.
I have not really got a good eye when it comes to arranging veg, but I hope that the above basket may win me something......
Tally ho

  1. A tasty supper when it comes home, minimum. I think it's lovely, good luck.

  2. A lovely basket John. I am amazed that your courgettes are already fruiting like that. "Trumps" will certainly happen if you consume all that veg. Good luck!

  3. Your Bosoms are both lovely and productive, I see. This is something perhaps uniquely British, to present arranged baskets of assorted produce. In the States, everything is judged separately. Fellow Yanks, correct me if I'm wrong, please!

  4. A lovely presentation, the veggies look delicious.
    I'd say a ribbon or two will be coming your way.

  11. Lovely veggies... I'm going to have to goggle "courgettes"... as I'm not familiar with that word. Are the veggies being judged as veggies or as an artistic arrangement? Either way, it looks like a winner.

  16. You lie. It's gorgeous. That was my first thought on seeing the photo even before I read your post - I wondered if you had done the arrangement or if it was a photo from the internetz ... truly. Good luck with your entry.

    2. I wouldn't know...

    3. There's a general penis theme running through the whole basket so they surely deserve a prize for consistency? Fingers crossed for a rosette...

  21. I think you're display looks mighty professional. I'm most impressed. The veg looks wonderful.
    I just harvested our first potatoes today (our first year with a veggie plot), but I'm not ready for such loft displays yet.
    Best of luck... I bet you come top 3.

  25. 'Bosoms'? 'Comes'? 'Trumps'? Something for everyone. Right - now for a game of 'guess the root vegetable!

  26. Bon Chance, Mon Ami. Admirable basket of fresh veg. Everything crossed for you. x

  27. I'll be up all night waiting to see the results of the veggie show!!! I wish the basket arrangement style would catch on here in the US, it's very attractive. (despite the obvious phallic theme)

  29. But like jane said - looks aren't everything - do they taste as well?
    You've done very well!(all of you)- takes hard work, patience and determination to present to the judges like that
    Fingers crossed for a ribbon and cert

    ReplyDelete
  34. very artistically arranged :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love your display, and as I'm on a Blog catch up I know that you came second...... but I bet yours was so much tastier than that arty farty basket that came first :-)
