To get a bit of inspiration, on tuesday I headed to Hampton Court Flower show. I’d never been to a flower show before, so I was interested to know whether i’d enjoy it or not.

I did. 🙂 A good day out with my mum and sister. It was really nice to see some amazing gardens and plants, as well as some fun/interesting garden furniture and bits and pieces for the home.

We had to dodge a few thunderstorms, but generally the weather didn’t cause us any problems. I felt distinctly middle-aged, but hey i’m getting used to that now.

Paul Dyer of WaterFeatures.co.uk had a stand there…we’ve decided to use him to put a stream into the garden next spring. (Slightly awkward use of the the Royal ‘we’ there – still trying to get the missus bought in!).

Check out his website WaterFeatures.co.uk to see an enthusiastic rant about how streams should be done!

You can see my photos of the show here, and using the wonders of social photo sharing you can see other peoples’ too in this Flickr Group.
