Bert describes his entry for the WI contest to Lynda: a wonderful display of vegetable flowers and leaves. Lynda manages to steam-roller him into getting more involved with the Ambridge Plinth at the fete.

Lilian arrives at Peggy's, and feels awkward when she realises Jennifer is already there. When Peggy leaves the room to answer the door to Lynda, Jennifer tentatively asks after Lilian, who she thinks looks tired and thin, but Lilian gives her short shrift. When Lynda starts talking about the plinth, Lilian cannot take it anymore and abruptly leaves.

Adam accuses Matt of treating Lilian badly and lying to her. Matt is angered by the interference but laughs in Adam's face when he accuses Matt of cheating on Lilian. He tells Adam to stay out of things he doesn't understand.

Later, Matt loses patience with Bert when he drops some hanging baskets off at the Dower House. Lilian returns and demands to know where Matt has been. He's angry about Adam's intrusion, which he assumes was on Lilian's instruction. Lilian denies all knowledge of Adam's visit, and tells Matt she doesn't believe his story. Matt doesn't care. He's told her the truth, and that's all there is to it.
