Just returned from looking at window blinds in a big shop where they have all kinds. I thought it would help me make up my mind what kind to have on the front of the house, but I'm more discombobulated than ever now... We will have to do something as our old ones are looking worse for wear, they are just flimsy vertical type ones. Looked up and can see that my quick verse is not very clever, as I've used the same word twice!! Ho hum. Heather, the rose is looking shabby now as after all the rain these last few days the blooms have gone brown and some of them have dropped off.
Here are the promised pics from the Flower Show: don't forget that we went on a ghastly day and it rained most of the time. When it wasn't raining it was drizzling! The first thing we saw after going through the entrance was a jolly fellow in a flowerpot, trundling around and talking to the visitors:
He said that he was not wet, as underneath his costume he was wearing a plastic bag!
This chap was also moving quite fast for a snail, amongst the crowds.
The usual floral display of the RHS name (Royal Horticultural Society, who run the show)
A welcome sight for some......
The old London buses are used for all kinds of things now, and this is a travelling bar.
In reply to Lindybird:

Lindybird: I do like the re-purposed bus. A shame about the weather on that day, especially as it improved after your visit.
OG: Glad you had a nice outing - a good thing that border isn't part of the Brexit deal.
Lynette: Sounds like your daughter isn't near the fires so no worries. What a lovely - and very practical - gift for your OH. :-)
Its surprising how you miss it when you don't have it!! Still wet and miserable here. Attacking the To Do List again. Here is the bronze sculpture I bought for our Youngest and wife:
