Every year there is a flower festival in St.Margarets church, Topsham, Devon in the UK.
I don’t always make it as it’s only on for 3 days but I did this year and thought I’d share some photographs of just a few of the wonderful displays.
The theme was health and fitness with funds raised for the local open air swimming pool. Quite a challenging theme for flower displays!

Two exciting developments , I now have slide shows on my website and I’ve started to add some photographs to stock photography site Dreamstime.
The slide shows are thanks to Highton Ridley and a tool he’s developed to promote zazzle products. You can see them on my website here.
I’ve had a few photographs accepted on Dreamstime so far, some with animals and a nature theme naturally! I’m attempting to add my bee video, although that’s been a bigger learning curve getting it in the right aspect ratio and not having black bands!
I know some of my readers take amazing photos, have you joined a stock photography site? If so I’d love your thoughts, if not but you’re thinking about joining here’s dreamstime’s link
I love tomatoes and have grown my own for a few years now. They love the utility room, so it doubles as a greenhouse in the summer and in fact last winter, see January blog post!
They are ripening nicely now but I don’t think this hanging variety is as tasty as gardeners delight, which aren’t quite ripe yet. The tomato plant below is a new one, sadly a late frost eventually killed off last years.
Do you have a favourite tomato?
Must have lunch now with tomatoes of course! I’ve bowls and wine glasses to paint this afternoon.
