At the Flower Show

show13view

Yesterday was the Horticultural Society’s ‘Spring’ Show. It’s been the worst growing season I can remember and yesterday the worst day for a show: relentless rain and the kind of wind that blows your umbrella inside out. Nevertheless, the people who grow to show managed to produce a wonderful display. I chickened out; just couldn’t face crawling around in the cold and wet to find the perfect primroses for the bench. Instead, for the first time ever, I entered some knitting.

I won first prize!

I was very pleased, but still wished I’d grown these.
