  13. There were a lot of very happy folk there, lots of smiling faces and chatty folk, we were made to feel very welcome. My two 'Seconds' are a brilliant start to my 'showing' career. Thanks for the inspiration to enter.

    And Well Done again for everything you did for the show, now Chris can have his man back ... well once you finish nigh shift ... sleep well.

  15. . Having read them all I am posting my reply on the top one John. What an absolutely splendid show John - probably the finest show in the land I would guess. And it is not just the entries which are heartwarming, but also the general public spiritedness and friendliness of all the competitors. Well done Trelawnyyd - and especially you who are obviously one of the leading lights (although you do tend to hide it under a bushel).

  19. All the posts, with all your lovely pictures were absolutely wonderful!!

    We have nothing like this over here, county fairs and state fairs - but still - nothing that even comes close in talent , community spirit and just sheer happiness. It was absolutely magnificent. Thank you so much for all the wonderful pictures and a big pat on the back for all your hard work in helping to put on the show. I had so much fun!!

  23. Wonderful to see all the photos! Feel like I've been there myself, just about. The bunting adds such a festive look. Excellent flowers and vegs and pictures and crafts and food and ... that eagle! Lucky you, John! Hope you get a nice rest before and after your work shift. Job well done.

  25. The chap on the left behind Sandra does not seem very happy about her victory. Enraged that he did not win? Or just not caught at the best moment?

  27. I love this recent trip to Trelawnyd and the Flower Show! Thank you for taking us all there and being such a great tour guide. Did you happen to get Chris on video or should we just use our imaginations that it was excellent as expected?

  28. The whole show, lead-up and all, makes me so wish to have been part of it. What a lot of work, but what a WONDERFUL event!

  29. I would have given Sandra Cameron a special award for tolerating life with her PM husband, David. Perhaps he was entered in the root vegetable section.

  30. We've all read your posts about the Flower Show preparations, the ticket selling etc, but l don't think I had any idea of the size of the event, and all the other work that has gone into it. You live in a lovely community, and when, eventually, you and Chris move you will leave a huge hole in the hearts of everyone in Trelawnyd.
    Thank you for sharing this with us, I'm sure I'm not the only one who would love to have been able to attend.
    Well done John..x

    Another flower show put to bed and the planning for next year's festivities starts tomorrow.
