  21. It was a wonderful show. Lovely to see you and the Prof there.

    We were chatting to a lovely couple from the village for most of the afternoon, Bob and Joyce. It's a small world but LH is in a similar profession as Bob used to be in, so they loved chatting to each other about things they couldn't chat to others about.

  29. I think my favorites are the baskets of mixed veg. What wonderful gardeners they must be to have so many lovely things growing at once.

  34. So pleased I called in to the show, so many wonderful entries in all classes, my,... the size of those onions! You could feel the sense of pride of the ones competing.. lol...nice to meet you and Auntie Glad, felt I already knew her.....What struck me most was the fact that everyone in the village had dressed up to go, some very pretty dresses and necklaces and the men looked smart. So different to my town!

  36. A big THANK YOU for sharing the Flower Show with us, John - and for all your hard work in making it such a success. Auntie Gladys always looks so smart - and I notice she changed her outfit between arranging the judges' table and making her speech. What a lovely, lovely woman she is. Fantastic photo of you and Auntie Gladys too. xx

  38. Not sure, after seeing the photo of the vomiting melon, whether I shall ever be able to eat melon again.
    Isn't it lovely to see so many entries, so many people there - and all those lovely ladies in their summer frocks. So pleased that Aunt Gladys made it.
