I did a bit more bunking off from weeding duty on Monday afternoon to visit a flower festival in a local church. The theme was A Flower Festival of Fairy Stories.
I think I have watched too much Bake Off. Bear with me the two really are connected. One of Mary Berry’s big criticisms of bakers is the use of too many props to convey a theme, its about the baking she says. Well the same I thought could be said of a flower festival. All the exhibits were lovely, but too many props and not enough flowers, many were just a flower arrangement in a container. (The school entries were very sweet and are totally not included in this comment.) See what you think.I shall save the best till last.
The Elves and the Shoemaker
Teddy Bears Picnic
Check out the marzipan picnic
Wind in the Willows ( school entry)
The Gingerbread Man (school entry)
And now my two favourites
The Ugly Duckling
and my number one top notch winner was
The Princess and the Pea

I couldn’t do any of them by the way,so what do I know!! Which do you like best, was I too harsh in my comments, do let me know.
