Everything turns out rosey in gardening competition
RESIDENTS and staff of a Waltham nursing home have just the tonic for a bright life.
Supported by Enliven Therapeutic Horticulture, residents at The Grove, in Ings Lane, Waltham, were worthy winners of Waltham In Bloom.
Residents prepared the soil, plants and took care of them until the big day of the competition.
There were two themes, the Queen's Jubilee and the Olympics, with flowers in red, white and blue, and gold, silver and bronze.

The preparation work was carried out by gardening expert Gavin Johnson, of Enliven, who spent weeks with the residents helping to grow and cultivate all the plants.
Residents also created two scarecrows, one with Olympic rings and the other holding his Union Flag.
The home was crowned Waltham In Bloom's best kept residential home or group dwelling for their efforts.
Suzanne Near, registered manager at the home, said: "We are so happy to see the reward for all the hard work Gavin and all the residents involved had done."
