Exhaustion!


When you have been on a Showground as beautiful as that of the Three Counties Agricultural Society and have been writing and posting solidly for five days, I think one may be forgiven for expressing a feeling of exhaustion, particularly when, as in my case, I had to actually LOOK at what I was writing about! I cannot keep away from this location, so it is good to have been working here, at the Malvern Spring Gardening Show, and previewing it for the last three months.  Do check it out: http://annsmalvernjotter.blogspot.co.uk. The link may need to be pasted into your browser as I am writing this on my iPad, and technology has been problematical over the last five days.

Will this work?

Experimental, but I think it will work - and followers of this blog
are the first to be able to comment on its success - pleas do so.
For the last three months, I have been engaged to write a new blog for the Malvern Spring Gardening Show, which this year runs from 9th-12th May. Ten posts in all, culminating in the one I posted today: http://annsmalvernjotter.blogspot.co.uk. It's been a wonderful adventure - something in all my years of commissioned writing that I have never attempted before. I will be blogging 'live' next week over the four days of the Show, a sort of kaleidoscopic scrapbook, and decided today that I could make use of TurboCollage to create the scrapbook feel. The image above is an experiment - I have often posted my photo collages on Facebook, but never tried to paste them into a blog. Does it work? What do you think of the idea to encapsulate the ambiance of a special event?
