I went Yesterday to The Autumn Flowers show in Harrogate, held in the Yorkshire Show grounds.
The last flower show of the year.I took a mere 150 photos only. This was my Fifth trip with Hils since June.
There were competitions for flowers, vegetables, fruits, Exhibitors displays, Honey and Mead, Flower Arranging, and a wide selection of Arts, crafts, Jewellry, clothing, Yorkshire Foods like cheese, Meats, pork pies, cakes, sweets, drinks, and even a Massage area run by physiotherapists.
It was packed yesterday with people, and the sun was shining.I will show a selection of photos this week. I worked today so my energy levels are low...
Photographed are some of the Gladiolus Display flowers arranged in Vases, with a Selection of classes. The winners got rosettes.
The flowers were all beautiful, but strange in the way that single Stems were displayed.I like my flowers in a garden, as part of a bigger display.
There were Carnations, Chrysanthemums, Roses, Dahlias, Gladiolus, Bonsai,....
Over ninety Nurserys and plant sellers were there.The funny wheeled plastic trolleys were there like at Tatton, for wheeling around all your new plants. There was a plant Creche too....
It was Sunny to start, then it became Autumnal with cloud, and a cold wind.It was a fabulous day out, but even I have become Planted it, after taking over 1200 photos :)
The Next flower show is in April, So I have time to recover from my frequent exposure to masses of plants and flowers.
