And so another year has gone by. Each year the Flower Festival comes around just before the more frequented Southport Flower Show. As usual the Mayoress bids me to grow her some flowers which she then enters into the Festival Home Grown section in her own name!
This year there was a 5 Sunflower category. Of course once again, she won Gold Medal. The prize is a five pound note and a Tesco voucher for the same amount.
I must admit that the flowers looked very good.
I must not admit that I purchased them from Lidl, the rising fast German supermarket in Blackburn for only £3.00…
