While my mother was staying last week we went to the Royal Horticultural Society’s flower show at Hampton Court Palace. It was fabulous. We went on Thursday and enjoyed good weather – it had been raining very heavily the previous couple of days and the mud was overwhelming, but at least it stayed mainly dry for us.
The show was huge, we were there ’til closing time and still had bits we hadn’t seen properly. I can assure you that I visited every toilet block on the site though! Photos can’t do the exhibits justice, but can give you a bit of an idea of what it was like.
I really liked this tiny garden. Again, the photos don’t do it justice. The round dark bit in front of the teepee is a little water feature. The pencils in the border reflect the colours of the flowers behind them.
Just a tiny peek at a huge show – I hope you enjoyed it!
