Floral judges in Bath!

Lots of activity in Parade Gardens today in tidying up borders and dead-heading flowers before Britain in Bloom judges descend on the award-winning location.IMG_2225

The fine weather and regular watering is making the city’s floral displays particularly ravishing this year.

It’s a year in which the Bath in Bloom organisation is celebrating its 50th anniversary and a long list of previous awards.

Here’s hoping they will be pocketing a few more this year!

Also nice to see some new stone spindles along the length of the balustrade bordering Grand Parade.

Many of the originals are suffering extreme erosion problems and urgent repairs are underway to secure many of them and renew others.
