Dahlias, Fans and Live Theatre!

14 Aug

The National Dahlia Collection is now just nearby at a local nursery and we went along to have a look. There were some real beauties.

On our way to the Buttermarket for a live theatre performance this evening, something in the distance across the carpark caught my eye. Zoom revealed a fan and some fabric. Another time I will go closer and investigate.

We have had just the best evening of magical live theatre, laughter and fun! The Pantaloons have just presented The Tempest in the liveliest and most anarchic production I have ever seen. Only four actors played the eleven parts with skill and imagination, drawing on the crowd to use their imagination and to provide local colour which was incorporated into the story seamlessly. They are touring until early September and are well worth seeking out. You will come away having smiled so much your cheeks will hurt!

    Hi Sally, I bet you really enjoyed the theatre! I watched the Tempest, during the week, on Cbeebies with my 3 year old grandson. It was brilliant! The stars from Cbeebies played the parts. Very enjoyable 👍 Take care Judith x

    My quibble with dahlias is that the support poles and ropes, etc., detract from the naturalness of the garden. I prefer flowers that can support themselves. :mrgreen:

      I agree. We only have two in the garden and they sprawl! 🙂
