RHS time

Seems like ages ago now although it was only at the beginning of last month when we journeyed to the suburbs in west London and joined the crowds heading towards the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show. It’s a lovely setting for the show as we meandered through the palace gardens in search of entrance. With a lot more space available the crowds weren’t as intense as Chelsea – which was a relief! The show gardens were scattered throughout the grounds and there were plenty of stalls offering different wares.

There wasn’t a particular garden provoking that ‘wow’ reaction although in one they had decided to feature olive trees. And the specimens that they found were impressive: wizened, gnarled, twisted and so so old with thick wide trunks and curvy short branches.

It was all relatively informal and we took a leisurely approach enjoying a few refreshment stops en route – got to savour my first Pimms for the year (very yummy!) under a brightening sky. Wasn’t sure if an afternoon was enough to see all the exhibitors and we didn’t have time to head into many of the tents. Guess its Tatton Park next year.
