Taunton Flower Show

As soon as we got into the flower show it started to pour down, most people seemed to have umbrellas apart from us
DSC_2637
A lot of people headed for the various marquees for shelter which resulted in marquees so crowded there was no room to breathe let alone move so back out into the rain!

There were a few loos but they were pretty cramped & smelly
DSC_2645
The rain soon stopped so we decided to head back into the marquees which were now much less crowded – this is the flower marquee and a display of cactii

A lot of people seemed to be coming into this marquee all at once to see the flowers
