Caught at Hampton Flower Show

Friday evening

yo dudes and dudettes. I’m grinning from ear to ear (wot? there to there?) I got back home an hour and a half ago, from a brilliant day out at the Hampton Court Flower show. I decided spur of the moment last night night that I was going to take the day off and spoil my senses, and I’m so glad I did. You know a girl has to have some time off occassionally.

I think one of my favourite gardens was the Couch Potato one, full of recycled things, including TV’s full of water and aquatic plants. They even had a copper water tank on it’s side (we have one of those in the garden – doesn’t look very good at the moment though, our plumber thought I was mad wanting to keep it). I even nearly got rid of it last week, now I’m glad I didn’t.

I’ll stick some photos up when I’ve downloaded todays crop – I think I took around 260. I also bought some hot plants, Crocosmia Lucifer, Helenium, yellow Coreopsis and a lovely orange flowered one with burgundy foliage. I also bought Garlic scented chives (yum) and 5 different lavenders for our new revamped front border. OOh and a lovely white Agapanthus. I can’t wait to get them in the garden, well, tell Rick where to put them…oh dear, that sound a teeny bit rude.

Which reminds me, I spoke to one of the show garden designers who thought she had a dichromatic bead necklace on.  Hee hee.  Off to finish watching Gardeners World
