Miniature Magic Gardens & More at Bloom! York - Part 3

Carr Junior School

The recent Bloom! festival in York, from the 5-8 July 2018, celebrated the 250th anniversary of the Ancient Society of York Florists - who have held an annual horticultural show since 1768. As part of the festival, local primary schools exhibited miniature magic gardens that they had created in wheelbarrows.  Thirty schools entered.  The miniature gardens were very colourful and great fun.  Here are a some of the entrants...

There were some fabulous floral arrangements and vegetables too (sorry, no veg pics).

The Society commissioned Emily Sutton to design a commemorative mug to mark their 250th anniversary.  What could be better than Yorkshire tea in such a fab mug!
