This was the theme (I hope, memory is like a sieve!) of this years Floral Art Competition at my parents local show. Mum entered 7 classes, and did very well. She's gained another couple of pieces of silver ware to polish, one for the most original use of colour, and one for the most points gained in the overall competition, she won 2 of her classes.
Last time I posted some pictures of her arrangements you were all really nice and left some lovely comments, she does read here so I'd love for her to hear that other people besides her daughter think she's wonderful!
I've uploaded all the pictures on to Flickr so they can be nice and big, if you click on the pictures it will take you to a version you can see larger.
This first one is in the category called Another Opening of Another Show and Mum chose to represent the Lord of the Rings, I have posted about this before but we have a large collection of animal skulls.
This one is World Wide Web, and unfortunately the only picture was taken with a shaky hand!
I can't quite remember the name of the class but it does represent Ballet.
This is a miniature class (it measures 25cm across) and again I've forgotten the class title!
This is the entry in the Fantasy class, which was a hanging exhibit to be viewed from all sides,
This is another class name I've forgotten and it's also a little wobbly! It represents a day at the beach.
This final one is in a class called Sporting Life where in true style Mum decided to represent Ice Climbing, we don't do those boring "safe" sports!
Finally, some Nether Garment progress, I have done the first leg, and started the second one, maybe I'll have 2 legs by the time the tour hits Paris!
On the green band I've put a 50p piece (approximately 3cm across) to give some scale.
