My Year in pictures - September

Show time at last!

The main activity this month is exhibiting the blooms. This involves selecting and cutting the flowers, dressing the individual blooms and transporting them safely to the shows.

Once at the shows staging and arranging the vases for maximum impact are the main jobs, plus socialising with fellow growers, many we may not have seen since last years shows so there's lots of catching up to do.
