M IS FOR?
THE MAGIC OF THE MALVERN AUTUMN SHOW!
~ where a couple of weeks or so ago I had the pleasure of meeting up with Patient Gardener again. Himself sends his thanks to you Helen for sparing him the ordeal of looking at all those flowers and plants :) On arrival we made a beeline for the RHS Flower Show where we gazed and gawped at the impressive displays and plants ~
On to the Harvest Pavillion and its seasonal celebration of all sorts of vegetables, herbs, fruit and flowers all grown by amateur gardeners. Here we came across the weird and wonderful ~
the bright and cheerful ~
and the most artistic displays of perfect home grown vegetables - not a blemish or slug nibble on them. How do they do it ? ~
Later in the day I met up with himself and we spent the afternoon strolling about the showground in glorious autumn sunshine. There were all sorts of stalls, activities and displays - something for everyone ~
For the romantic soul ~
For the little people - a bijou caravan with lift up roof ~
For those who like their machines ~
and yet more marvellous veg ~
To round up the day an ice cream and a quick final whizz round the flower show, where I made one or two more purchases to add to the ones made earlier. Will 'fess up soon. A grand day out - my feet have more or less recovered and I hope to return for the spring show in 2010.
