today belper has hosted the regional judges for this years in bloom competition.
i was lucky enough to be invited to the lunchtime reception at the town council offices where we listened to a couple of speeches from john nelson and one of the judging panel.
after the speeches one of the judges came up to me with big smiles and sat and chatted about the two works on the trail in the outdoor spaces.
the lady judge was complimentary about the trail and i thanked her for her feedback.
i believe that the lettuces in the memorial gardens are now ready to eat ....
( note : i feel this above many others demonstrates my dsylexic tendancy to bounce quickly from one subject to another)
