another whirlwind visit to manchester on monday, but sadly too early to make the Tatton park flower show. i am immensely proud and ecstatic that my lovely friend Laura Arison won the GOLD, best in show award for her Maggie’s Forest Garden ! Laura is not only a talented artist, but now a talented garden designer – and she only decided to do this in the last few years. so it goes to show that you really are never too old to embark on a new passion! i wish that i had timed my visit to see my mother with the show, but you are able to go all this weekend.
had lunch in teacup and cakes -followed by an amazing victoria sandwich – there is a lovely selection of teas and home made cakes there and the northern quarter is a short walk from Picadilly train station. the northern quarter is Manchester’s answer to shoreditch, but sadly not as many shops, but quite a few cafes.
