Perth inBloom.

Good Afternoon, been back up to Perth today as Stuart had an appointment with his Cardiac Consultant.  He has decided that Stu needs to have his medication finely tuned as he put it and will make an appointment for him to have another heart scan just to check everything is OK. We were very quick at the hospital so we went for coffee and a look round a very large Dobbies garden centre in Perth. On our way I got Stuart to park the car so I could take these pictures at the Swimming pool in Perth. You will maybe remember me telling you last year Perth won a Gold medal for Britain in Bloom well I think these pictures are of part of this years entry. I saw this last week when I took the pictures out of the car but we could not get stopped so I planned it better today so I could show you what they have made out of flowers. It is a pity about the shadow over the large Sunflower but I could not get around it at all.  Have been busy in the garden this afternoon trying to freshen it up a bit as it was looking a bit tired.  Well that's the kitchen calling me down to make some food. Have a good evening. Love

I wish they would do something like that around here.  I love to see these floral displays and they should be everywhere.  Well done Perth, they are beautiful.  Thanks for sharing with us.
