International Competition !


It's St David's Day here in Wales today.
No doubt the village school children will be dressing up for it's traditional for the girls to wear the old fashioned tall black hats with lace trim or to have small leaks or daffodils pinned to their clothing.
I've filled vases with daffodils and have put them on the window ledges to mark the day.

Anyhow to the subject of today's post!
It concerns all of you readers!
After much discussion by the Trelawnyd Flower Show Committee, it was eventually decided that the " International Novelty Vegetable/ fruit Photo Competition " (which has been such an informal but popular part of the Show's schedule over the last two years ) will be made an official part of the show from now on!
So have a look on the schedule and you will see it proudly entered into section 4 - The Floral Art & Photography Section. This year it would be great to have around a hundred photograph entries ( for those that don't know the photographs can be emailed to me for printing)

  2. How wonderful to be 'official'!!! I will have to get my thinking cap on for what to enter. Those cauliflower and broccoli poodles would take some beating!

  5. With the price of cauliflower rising like gold, there might be only green poodles this year.

  6. Hardly original, but I thought at first that the one on the left must be a collie (cauli?). Oh, never mind!

    2. Oh Mitch! You're making me feel even more that I shouldn't have bothered.

    3. Oh, Ray, I'm really glad you did! Maybe I should have written BrocCollie. Anyway, they both look like Poodles!

  22. Happy St David's Day!
    Aren't daffs just the cheeriest flower ever. I have 3 vases of them in the house at the moment, kitchen, dining room, living room, they're such a lovely sign that winter's finally on the way out!
    I have a few pots of tete a tete in the garden that are flowering, but the ones in the ground are slower, fortunately, I'd hate them all to have flowered before Easter! X

  24. As I was curious about Saint David's Day, I had to look it up. I'm sure that a lot of your readers had no clue. Found this on a quick search and found it quite interesting!

  31. The poodles have inspired me. I love a challenge. Is England international enough??! x

  32. Happy St David's Day! I wore red; daffs here are about 1/4 inch up, unheard of in my neck of the woods so early in the year. But winter here has been mild for the most part.
