Me and my big mouth, boasting about the lovely weather we are having.... It's raining now :-( Oh well, that's just another typical summer in the UK I suppose....
I have an update on the regional heat for you as promised.21 competitors took part in the Northern Ireland competition, with a wonderful selection of flowers and sundries they all set to off to complete the first task , an arrangement to go on/or at the base of a grand piano. Several competitors used the purple Midelino Sticks to represent the music bars and notes, which created both rhythm and movement through their designs. The body adornments were both creative and varying in styles and designs, and followed on by their presentation bouquets and chaplet, which was to be placed around the head of Sir Malcolm Sergeant, proving to cause them the most problems.
Judith Derby NDSF HMSF Chief Judge said afterwards "The general standard was very good, and a big improvement on last year, which is very encouraging."
More as I receive it folks, till then, take your brollie with you when out and about. You might get wet just like I did this morning in a mini monsoon :-)
