BAD WEATHER HITS FLOWERSHOW
Photographs by Patrick Trollope
BAD weather hit most of the UK again making this years August the wettest on record.  Sadly for the Flowershow the bad weather has all so affected it growing the show to the growing list of weather affected events this year.   This how ever did not put of the enthusiasts, over the first two days of the 4 day long event.  "It is weather for ducks, not gardeners, but after the sun scorching the flowers early on this year, we can not complain about a bit of rain... We were parrying for it!" one tourist who had come up from severely hit Exeter told us on Thursday, at the show.   In side the massive Grand Floral Marquee, even the one of the displays added rain to it.   "We added the water feature as a joke last second.   We were the first to start building, but we soon had to stop as the ground became flooded a week before the show was due to start.   A day later we started again.  After most of the main work had been completed we decided to add the rain to the roof of our hut instead of putting in our original idea, a fountain.   The idea is to show the contrast between what was going on out side and making fun of our original concept, showing the good old view of "Sunny Southport"." Pete Jackson from Dobbies told us.
 
If you have still not gone, we recommend you do as the event has lots of amazing displays.  The event finished on Sunday 22 August so you have to get a move on.     We will bring you a full roundup report and a massive amount of photographs from this years Flowershow next week.   To tempt you to go along to this years show we have included a few shots from the Opening day.
