• The RHS Hampton Court Flower Show

    8th July 2010Hampton Court Flower ShowStephanie Donaldson


    Off to the year’s third major RHS Flower Show yesterday and walked myself to a standstill.  Despite spending 7 hours at the show, I left feeling that there were a few things I would like to have returned to, but by that time my legs had other ideas and walked me firmly towards the car. I took loads of photos and I’ve selected some of my favourites of the gardens, details and people, as well as some that I thought were worth commenting on.  There’s something for everyone at Hampton Court from the serried ranks of perfect leeks [Attention!] to the finely detailed not-so-soft furnishings of The Garden Lounge with its working lamps and cushions made from sun and moon-proof (?) fabrics.


    Fairies seem to be obligatory – thankfully there didn’t seem to be any goblins this year (I loathe those pokey-fingered pointy-eared critters) and I was actually quite charmed by the fairy in the clump of heartsease in the Midsummer Night’s Dream Garden.
