Blooming good luck!

Those South West in Bloom judges were in the city this week which means our local Bath in Bloom organisation, the Bath BID and B&NES Parks Department staff will all have their fingers crossed and the glint of gold in their eyes.

A lot of hard work – under very difficult conditions – has gone into making our city welcome summer visitors with flowers.

While l realise many businesses have to try every trick in the book – during such difficult conditions – to attract trade and would not be able to afford to do such large ‘floral’ displays with the real thing – l have to say l prefer Nature’s colour to plastic.

The city’s pride is at stake. We apparently won Gold and we category winners in the Britain in Bloom Southwest competition back in 2019.

Just myGood luck all round l say.
