Cardiff in Bloom

LNRA was invited to a Cardiff in Bloom reception held today at Roath Park Cafe. Myself, Derek and Margaret attended. We are hoping to enter - possibly this year, definitely next!

Margaret, Derek, me and Cllr Thomas
We met new Exec member for Culture Leisure and Sport, Cllr Huw Thomas. It was his first official event, and hopefully not too taxing; though I think he did get lobbied...;-) Garden designer, Gaynor Whitchard attended in her role as CiB judge and it was great catching up with her a month after the show. Thanks to council officer Ruth Mumford for organising the event. We had a big group photo, so goodness knows where that'll turn up! Here's just one of us schmoozing. (Where's Alex...?!)

I also bumped into Colin and John who were busy installing the 'Captain Scott' centenary garden into Roath Park. It won a silver gilt at Chelsea a few years ago, so will be well worth a visit!

Afterwards I dropped copies of the photos I've collected over the past few months into Wedal Rd Parks dept for the show garden team. Then it was back to work at UHW processing 100s of smelly urine samples. Lovely.
