Ashby Show - Miscellaneous 6/7

Taken at the annual Ashby Show, near Ashby-de-la-Zouch in July. One of the competitive displays in the Women’s Institute tent was flower arrangements, of which there was some superb examples. I quite liked this one and I also got the benefit of the lady busy admiring one of the other arrangements nearby.

I always enjoyed seeing the flower displays, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes so do I Ray, it is a pastime Maureen enjoys quite a lot.
Flower arranging is quite an art!
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Elizabeth. Maureen enjoys doing it and often does arrangements for church and friends birthdays etc.

This is very colourful and well put together Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes it is Chris, although not the most attractive of the arrangements there.
Some work gone into that arrangment
Brian Walbey: They do take a lot of time Shane, and need a lot of planning for competitions like this.

The lady looks concentrated - I wished she would show a happy smile. Flower arrangements are an English speciality - oh, I saw so pretty ones in different churches and cathedrals- and real flower shows!
Brian Walbey: Yes I think she is taking it all in Philine. Maureen does a lot of flower arranging, both for our church and friends birthdays etc.

I like the arrangement. Very old-fashioned. I like the sky blue vase next to it but not the arrangement in it. There is not enough green in it.
Brian Walbey: There was other arrangements much nicer than this one but it was the combination of the flowers and the lady behind that caught my eye, so this was very much a grab shot.
I find the vegetable shows amusing. Three decoratively arranged carrots with a prizewinning rosette is a bit odd
Brian Walbey: Yes I find that a bit strange also, not even enough on the plate for a good meal smile
Flower arranging ! Nice building smile
Brian Walbey: Yes this is rather a strange looking one though.

I'm lost in admiration for some flower arrangements. Some people seem t have those skills, others (like me) don't! Was the lady eyeing up the competition?
Brian Walbey: I don't know what the lady was up to other than being quite absorbed which is why I took the picture. Maureen does a lot of flower arranging, mainly for the church but for friends as presents and so on.
A beautiful arrangement Brian!
Brian Walbey: It wasn't one of the best to be honest Richard, but I took it because of the lady absorbed in the various displays.
Someone taking a very serious interestt in things!
Brian Walbey: Yes it was the lady oblivious to all but the flowers which tempted me tot take the picture Tom.
