I absolutely loved this garden, ' Postcard from Wales' at this year's
Chelsea Flower Show.
And I thought that the idea of using the jockey silks for
inspiration, for the Florist and Young Florist of the year, was a superb idea!

One of the entrants , I noticed was a florist, Kate Bainbridge, from Bovey Tracey.
Meanwhile, continuing a gardening theme...
I can't believe that it was a year ago when we took ourselves off
to the Garden fair at Chagford, one Saturday morning...and came home
with a nice little hoard of garden bits (above)!
And so, on Saturday, we repeated the trip!
I always love the trip to this gorgeous little town!
But this time we took a different route home...across Dartmoor.
And a very bleak Dartmoor it was too!
Some people say this is when the moors are at their very best!
Here we are at Combestone Tor.
And thus, we trundled across the moor...
with a few bits from the Chagford garden fair, in the back of the car!
My footy team didn't win...in fact they didn't really get out of the starting blocks!
But, as I was always told when I was very young,
it's the taking part that is important and
without a loser there can be no winner!
