At the flower show

Managed to make an appearance at the flower show this afternoon. My only contribution was to donate some plants for sale. I do like the Love Lies Bleeding in the vase above. I couldn't have filled a vase from my garden, except with hydrangeas. It’s been a difficult summer for the growers. Some of our best competitors were engaged elsewhere, there were some sad looking entries and fewer visitors than usual. I’d be really sorry if we didn’t keep having the shows, though. I’d have photographed the winning (only) entry in the ‘heaviest marrow’ class but it looked like something out of Dr Who and might have reminded some people of the giant slugs infesting their gardens.

I think this might be a phygelius. Any other suggestions?
