what a beautiful day for a flower show – debra and i walked most of the way from her house in maida vale, along the canal and through to hyde park – london is wonderful to get around via canal towpaths and through its many parks! its all sold out now, but you could go to one of the many events coming up around the country, such as hampton court or tatton park. sadly i came back to my own little garden thinking that i needed to spend more time, money and effort on it! its a great event to not only feel inspired by the wonderful gardens, but also to choose the actual flowers and shrubs that you like and source where to get them from. you know its not just for the ladies, we took debra’s brother who absolutely loved it !
