Despite it now being officially spring here in the UK, we are still experiencing really cold weather with cold blasts from the north.   So, the Spring Show at the Farnborough Fuchsia & Perlargonium Society I belong to was a welcome respite from the wintry conditions outside our meeting place.  This was our first Spring Show and was a huge success.  Unfortunately I forgot to take my camera and only remembered the camera on my 'phone when I was driving home.    We had lots of entries and most members entered at least one and most two or three of the ten classes we had.  I was thrilled that I won a first in two classes, but I have to confess that in one class mine was the only entry and in the second class there were two entries.    Still it was all great fun and everyone enjoyed it.

 My Blue Jug continues to be filled with flowers or greenery from the garden - just now it has my standby Viburnum with blue Pulmonaria, primroses and Tete a Tete daffodils.

 The window box outside is looking particularly good just now 


  1. Beautiful flowers. Our first day of spring was colder than the last day of winter. With snow too. I am ready for the flowers.

  2. I'm looking for Spring too! The weather has been appalling! Congratulations on your firsts! Really well done!
