Went Saturday. Amazing but must say I was not as in awe as last year at Tatton ( the only other the flower show I've been to admittedly). 

OH well and truly treated me! Three 'harlequin willows' and a wooden chair. Just where to put them now! 

I bought a few bits n bobs myself as well.

Travel and parking was very good, we arrived at 9.45, long queue on foot but not bad on the drive there.

Wellies were essential, fun watching OH in his shoes!

Loving the clover and bees, in fact I'm cutting the grass around it and leaving it to grow -OH not so keen!

Geums don't seem to be doing as well, they lasted almost all summer last year but don't seem quite 'right' this time.

Me Joyce! I want a neat border, like the others on here! Every year I get over run and move everything to make space, never manage to get the right shapes and heights to go together, but hey, that's the fun of gardening!

Beautiful photos. Loving foxgloves, aliums galore, aliums with red broom, gorgeous tidy gardens, perfect blooms, acer corner, close ups and long shots! Feeling envious but may get some of my garden posted anyway.

Is this a tree sapling?

Thanks Dove, I've pulled it! 

Found the culprit - Here is its mummy. Which works well as we want to take the conifers down and were worried about being overlooked - job done! It's in next doors garden but poking through our fence too.
