Taunton flower Show August 2019

We had never been to the Taunton Flower show before, even though it is very well established being the oldest flower show in the UK.  We prepaid our tickets but had to queue to get in.  Going at opening time obviously is the busiest time, won’t make that mistake again.DSC03375

The Taunton Flower Show takes place in Vivary Park which in itself has magnificent beds of flowers, run by the council.DSC03374

There were lots of craft stalls, and food stallsDSC03371
