Friday 19 August 2011 – Southport Flower Show

Southport Flower Show - A Winner

Sue and I spent Friday at Southport Flower Show.  A very pleasant day out.  It’s still on today.  Whilst many were complaining about prices – nearly £50 for two people to park and enter – I wasn’t.  I had just returned from Switzerland….

This garden quite took my fancy…

The theme of the gardens seemed to be flowing water, whether from a bottle, fountain, or in this case a simulated stream.

Southport Flower Show - Theme of the year: Water

There were a number of gardens and displays that had won accolades, but were deserted.  HMP Kirkham isn’t far away and seems to keep its inmates occupied in the gardens, which must have high walls, as no stripy shirts were in evidence.

Sue took quite a few ‘flowery’ pictures, of which three are included below, and one prize winning display is in the header.  A few more images – mostly Sue’s – can be found in the slide show – click here.

If you get fed up with looking at gardens and flowers, there’s always a good jazz band in front of which to chill out.
