Hampton Court Flower Show

Last Friday I went with two of my schoolfriends to the Hampton Court Flower Show.  This is the first time I have been to the show, although I have wanted to go for years.   The weather was not great and we did get rained on a few times so it was a little muddy!
We had a good look around all the gardens, there was a really nice wartime garden.
We also went in all the marquees and one of the interesting gardens we saw there was the garlic lovers garden. 
It was a long day but very enjoyable and I would like to go another time.

I have loaded the remainder of the photographs on my flickr photostream http://www.flickr.com/photos/58563435@N02/sets/72157627191424820/


  1. I went here several times in my teens with my parents and despite me having no interest in gardens etc. I always had a really good day. I imagine it is a whole lot better now and I'd love to go again sometime!

  2. Beautiful photos from the flower show! Great close ups - but I love that garlic arrangement best! How clever.
