The Village Flower Show [Jul. 13th, 2013|06:10 pm]
Tony Grist
The hottest day of the year. We went into a marquee which was even hotter- and looked at plates of potatoes and bunches of flowers and displays of childrens art and things like that. I was pushing my mother in the wheelchair and she was taking an interest. I tried to take an interest too (honest) but my persona wasn't having it.

Coming home we encountered Lee standing by an open-topped vintage car which if I cared about cars I'd have envied. She'd been to the flower show earlier. "Wasn't it wonderful!" she said.  I let my mother answer. If I'd have been compelled to answer I might have said, "Compared to what?"

Compared to what...Tee hee!!!
No gumboots, but horsey people??? You survived but I hear every one was tired afterwards - was it very draining?

It was too hot for gum boots. Yes, it was exhausting.

I'd be inclined to compare it to the memories of the preceding winter, I think, where all the branches were nude, nigh dead. The wonders of this season are such a fantastic contrast. ^_^

Cars, similarly - I've no particular interest, but there's undeniable style in some companies' design philosophies, as we see with Apple, and amazingly few others in that sector. Indeed, there's an outing to the Morgan company arranged via Grays of Westminster that I'm very tempted by, for that unusual level of access.

I think this car may have been a Morgan. Ailz said she thought it was.
