The Rose Garden Society's annual festival starts tomorrow. With competition so fierce the judges remain secret to avoid threats and bribes, a few broken stems could win or lose the coveted Gardener of the Year award.
Dog walker Penelope Standing enjoys a nice shade tree, but that's the extent of her gardening interest. She worries more about all the dogs missing after last night's storm. Crumbling fences and high winds make a bad combination.
But there may be a link between the missing dogs and the festival.
