Super Saturday, Super Sunday?

Don't have a lot of energy after all my armchair participation in the Olympics yesterday - what a wonderful day for team GB, how exciting to see the joy on so many faces and heartbreaking to witness near miss disappointments.
My favourite moment was the one where Sophie Hosking and Katherine Copeland  won the lightweight women's double sculls. I have no knowledge or prior interest in rowing but the delight on Katherine's face was be captured forever on a Royal Mail stamp!
Meanwhile, my weekend started on Friday with a girls' day out to Ayr Flower Show. It's many years since I went to this home - grown event and in those intervening years it has grown......we had a great day viewing giant vegetables, huge flowers, reading comments on flower arrangements, all very Kirsty Allsop............there were loads of traders, super plant sales, yummy foods (with samples) and a large craft marquee -  not a quilt in sight tho, something bluepatchquilters might just have to address next year!!
I shall leave you with these bonkers images of begonias. Clearly someone harnessed the little sun we have seen this year.

                                                                 Enjoy Super Sunday!
