Sheffield is gearing up to host its own ‘design-led version’ of the Chelsea Flower Show in June 2014 in a ground-breaking move to turn the city into a centre of garden and landscaping excellence. The Botanical Gardens will be divided up into 3 specific zones: Innovations Zone / The Marketplace / The Landing Zone for parents and children. The ‘Garden Up’ show gardens will involve the work of some of the top horticulturists and designers from around the country including ones that have previously exhibited at the Chelsea and Tatton Flower Shows.
Location: The whole of the Sheffield Botanical Gardens
Visitors welcome (Free)

Right KEF, got a bone to pick with you... you are only round the corner so how come your lavender looks like THAT and mine is a greeny silver clump still??? And WHY is your gunnera so much bigger than mine???

At least I have some poppies which are as big as a trampoline!!!

 Love the blue flowers in photo no 2.

Morning, just, to you all.

Late ish up today, forced myself out of bed cos of some lovely sunshine.

Chat to friend by phone who's computer has been hacked, very upest, not leaset because she 'did something silly' (phone call, click on links, personal details, all that scenario).

Then a welcome but unexpected visit from childminder, her son and dog, lovely chat, not so keen on dog sniffing my plants though... 

Behind on necessary tasks (like breakfast!). Still a nice day but I bet by the time I get myself together it will be raining again!
