Flowers in August

This is the title of my village's annual flower show. The entry form says "please remember this show is just a 'friendly one' so enter just for fun". There are classes for flowers, vegetables, eggs, floral decoration, baking (the recipe class this year was a lemon drizzle cake), children's classes, and photography.

The hot, dry weather recently meant that there were a lot fewer entries in the vegetable classes. In fact, hardly any. When we had chickens I used to enter the egg class, but these days I only enter the photographic classes. Just for fun, as the programme rightly says. Its not very posh.

The classes that I entered this year were and got first in were Sunrise; Village summer events; New Frampton Court. The last subject refers to a ghastly new development of very expensive flats that was, suprisingly, approved by English Heritage who said that they would not detract from the atmosphere of the village. Yeah, right. I couldnt resist a very quick attempt. I think it was the humour rather than the expertise that caught the judges' eye!
