With Roxanne Stirling

Friday and another visitor. This time it was Roxanne Stirling from The London Children’s Flower Society. 

She had arrived to judge the spring bulb growing competition. Our hyacinths and daffodils that we planted before christmas were flowering beautifully – perfect timing!

The children gave Roxanne a tour of the garden and she seemed genuinely impressed with the children’s knowledge and gardening skills.

Then, it was time for a careful scrutiny of our efforts. She admired the daffodils – showing us how some of them had three flowers growing from one stem. The hyacinths were looking (and smelling) pretty good too.

Then………we were given GOLD! We were all very pleased and the children were able to take their flowers home.

Thanks Imogen and Owen. I got the children up in assembly today and gave out their certificates so the whole school could see how well they have done!
