As I am hoping to have a few entries in a couple of the local flower shows next month, when I read on Blogging Buddy John's blog Going Gently the other day, that the Prestatyn Flower Show was on this weekend, I decided we needed to pay it a visit. Partly to see how to display entries properly and partly for a bit of inspiration.
And look who's exhibits I came acrosss on my mooch about the produce tents.
A First and a Third .... well done John :-)
It was a lovely afternoon, with the sun peeping out from behind clouds every few minutes and the local band playing foot tapping tunes.
We worked our way around the stalls, had a go on the charity Tombola stall, bought a cake stand from the local Hospice stall ... only we've re-christened it a 'Sandwich Stand', as we no longer really have cakes at home. We bought quite a few plants ready for the new flower bed that will be going in when the wall and fencing above it is complete, and then we sat on a bench with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake between us ... we do eat a bit of cake when we are out!!
All in all it was a very nice way to spend a sunny July Saturday afternoon. On the way out we looked at the display of classic cars, lined up gleaming in the sunshine. Lovely Hubby wanted one of them .... but I reminded him that I have only just bought him a new car last weekend ;-)
