« on: August 19, 2011, 05:07 PM »
hi had a day out at southport flower show yeasterday , i have been going there for a good few years ,its seems to get better every year ,a great family day out with plenty to see , i wonder why it does not get the same coverage as chelsea flower show ? all that was on tv was a short  snippet on bbc northern news on wednesday the flowers and plants in the grand floral marguee were out of this world , i wished i could grow some of the vegetables like the ones on display the onions were that big it was lasted you a month, we sat and had our butties at the band stand being entertained by the kings of rhythm swing band doing frank sinartra songs , drove down lord street afterwards  and i still think its one of the best shopping street in britain , back to work monday worst luck  :)
