As I was walking past the Grand Pavilion at Chelsea Flower Show, I heard cheering and clapping and dashed in to record the moment when Kay Willis of Christchurch in Dorset! Yes Dorset! was being presented with her award for Top Young Florist of the Year! Well done to her, an amazing floral display.

Below are some of the other entries

The brief was to create a Brazilian Carnival Headdress

The winning one. I love the colours, now can I recreate this in crochet…….
