happy owltober from Malvern Autumn Show

Summer may be ending but the season is not yet over. I'm still waiting impatiently for my grapes to harvest and some of my flowers to come out (yes really) and there was yet space for one, last garden show. Malvern is a bit of a county show with a garden show tacked on the side, and this was reflected in things like the giant/novelty vegetable show and the stiff/weird flower arranging competition displays. However the floral displays were massive, the nursery stands extensive and the weather much more congenial than it had been back in the summer, and I scored some rarities (a tiny delicate white Rose of Sharon relative), bizarrities (Chilli Nosferatu seeds!) and absurdities (Green Mist Chrysanthemum seedling). Also: happy owltober.

On the note of Owltober, did you know that Stoptober has now been accessorised with go Sober for October? Which sadly I shall be doing, as I have managed to book work over the Oxford Beer Festival.
