After a somewhat long hiatus, I’m back to flood your inbox with random archival documents and photographs!

At this time of year, I’m sure you are busy tending to their vegetable gardens and weeding their flowers but have you ever considered entering a flower show and exhibition? The following is the programme and regulations for a flower show hosted by United Memorial Church (Halifax) in 1927. Note that there were some categories where only boys or girls could participate. Preparing for some of these categories would have been quite time-consuming, can you imagine collecting 50 wild flowers?

Anyway, I’m going to go water my roses now so happy gardening!
