Flower Show HQ

I slept in heavily this morning and only woke up with a start when at 7am I heard the phone ringing.
In my hurry to answer it, I caught the leg of my boxers on the bedroom door knob and had a devil of a time hanging over the top of the stairs.
I think I've done myself a bit of a mischief in the old groin region.
Anyhow with Flower Show Day approaching the cottage has taken on the appearance Dorothy's house from The Wizard Of Oz  AFTER the tornado had hit. It's a mess only Flower Show Secretaries from around the world will understand....
I will leave you with a few photos of the chaos .....and promise not to bore you with such larks tomorrow...hey ho
Flower Show HQ READY for action

The trophies have mostly all been returned and cleaned

Mine and The Prof's herb exhibits all ready

The jam jar vases for the tea tables, all prepared

  1. I trust the phone call was worth the risk to your 'wedding tackle'. Better give it a try-out tonight just to be sure.

  2. One of the best inventions of the 20th century has to be the answering machine or function on your cell phone! I never panic when the phone rings anymore. Talk about getting your knickers in a twist!! Hope you are OK.

    2. you are correct; give squire gray a scotch egg!

      Delete
    3. I bought a scotch egg today from "The Banner Crust". Still warm and the yolk inside still a little bit soft. Unfortunately I cannot give it to Squire Gray as I have already and entirely consumed it. Sorry John!

  10. Why is it that whenever a man's nether regions are in peril, I find myself snorting with laughter? Husband on the other hand, crosses his legs and winces in sympathy. Hope all goes to plan for the flowery festivities

  11. Boxers? I find them uncomfortable even without the involvement of a stray knob.

  12. Oooh so exciting!! It will all be worth it on the day xoxo

  13. Gawd, you make me laugh, John! Thank you for the extra details of your life... I'm not referring to the Flower Show. :^)

    1. Sigh,
      I rushed past the knob and flapping bit of my boxer leg caught the said door knob

      Delete
    2. Was the knob brass or wooden? Detail is so important in these matters.

      Delete
    3. makes me glad to be short, then. In my house, most door knobs are at my waist.

  15. John hope your family jewells have recovered . Xx

  16. Now did the Professor really pot up his own herb selection or did he beg you to do it?

    ... OR, did he get you to do it by threatening to not make the copies of the obscene entries for the International Novelty Vegetable Competition??

    The plot thickens

  17. It's chaos, but I think it is beautiful chaos.

  18. "I caught the leg of my boxers on the bedroom door knob and had a devil of a time hanging over the top of the stairs.

    File that as something I never though I would read. Well done.
    Your herb selections are lovely.

  19. Ouch to the boxer shorts incident! I wonder if anyone else has encountered that experience? Might be a Guinness Book of Records entry for you?

    The Flower Show activity is hotting up and the excitement is growing all around the globe thanks to you. Here's hoping this year's event will be your best ever!
