Hello all

Like the arch Panda happy Bday

Been planting up the border today and finished planting out all the plants, knees a bit sore definitely a work out on my legs, the amount of time bending and standing up.  Sort out pics when I take them - butterflies and bees flocking in already

Woody will there at the open gardens next year for your garden and a few we did not get to see  - might meet Chicky then

Here are Woody's pics for you all to see - he finished planting his terrace today

Leant about the watering as I was offered by another enterer some oasis for the vase by the time we went back to the show the flowers wilted a bit - but at least the judges got to see them not long after I put them in the vase

Evening all.  Just back from Veg/Flower show and the good news is that I won three prizes out of the six entries so not bad at all.  

I got third prize for perennials 2 varieties (3 of each),  I put in three japaneze anemones and three yellow ox eye scabra; third prize for my sweetcorn (minipop); and second prize for a collection of 9 flowering stems (at least 3 different varieties), I put in two dahlias, kerria, 2 x zinnia, salvia Victoria and a penstemon.

It was a very good day as I did not expect to win anything as I had never entered a show before.  Did not realise quite how much effort it takes to enter a show - you have to be up early to get things ready and then display everything for the judges, then you have to go back to see how you did and wait for prize giving to be able to take your entries home.

Will add a few photos later.

HELLO FORKERS!
