Post Script

I completely forgot to tell you that my hastily assembled jug of flowers won first prize in the Beginner’s Flower Arrangement class at the village Spring Show on Saturday! You won’t be that impressed, though, when I tell you that there were only two entries. All the same, I was a little chuffed. My daughter’s little posy came second. She was a bit put out but will try again.

My winning flower 'arrangement'.
My winning flower ‘arrangement’. The rules allowed up to £5 worth of flowers so I used some tulips I’d bought. Everything else was from the garden.

To make up for two posts in one day, here are some more photos of the lovely Walmer Castle gardens!

Bright, zingy tulips and wallflowers.
Gorgeous tulips, hyacinths and wallflowers. The smell was amazing.

That’s all for now. Have a good week.
