Beckenham Flower Show – Year 2

Hello all! Today I have been out and about at Beckenham Park Place Flower Show, for its second year. You may remember last year that I entered the Craft Flower category. And I won both my category and also Best in Show. (You can read about it here).

Of course it would be rude not to enter again this year wouldn’t it. I am all for supporting community events, and I have to defend my title don’t I. So this year I made this:

A lovely bunch of Tulips. And I crocheted the Vase cover too. All with Rico Ricorumi yarn.

N

ow, I would say I won. I certainly got the first place Rosette. But unfortunately, I was the only entrant. I was a little sad about this as it really isn’t winning if you had no competitors. So instead of a Win, I am considering it a simple ‘Thanks for supporting our community event’. I suppose the thing is, community events take a while to Blossom, so these first few years can be a little slow. But hopefully over the next few years, more people will enter and get involved. Regardless, I am really proud of my entry. It got lots of praise from people viewing it, so that’s a bonus.

And a bonus for you, is that I wrote down the pattern I made up for these tulips! So keep your eyes peeled for my pattern releasing some time next week, providing I can find enough time to sit down and type it out!
