We were lucky enough to win a pair of tickets from Ecover to the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and we decided to go last Saturday.
The weather was wonderful, the hottest day of the year so far.
The gardens displays were amazing, especially the Ecover one itself.
It won both a Gold Medal and Best in Show.
The colours were just as I like a garden, soft beautiful and calming to the eye, and the plastic bottle tops and components simply added to the natural look of everything else. Sheer genius.
The other displays were good too.
Lovely Hubby's favourite, my man loves a splash of orange.
The £7,000 garden, LH could be heard muttering under his breath, "I could do better for that sort of money" for ages afterwards...Lol.
They shouldn't have told him how much it cost!!
This guy had the right idea on such a hot day, a lady jumped under the shower fully clothed a few minutes later .... she just couldn't resist.
What to do with your old fridges ....
... thought provoking ....
... but I don't think it will catch on.
Lots of folk found this one very strange, the guy was connected to his plants with tubing, them breathing his Co2 and him their oxygen, he must have been soooo hot with his mask on.
Not my cup of tea, but it stood out nicely amongst all the others.
It looks like driftwood, and indeed the original was, but this lovely horse was made of brass.
Wire ladies enjoying the sun.
I don't know where the breeze came from to blow her hair like that ....
.... but her friends was going in the opposite direction!
Simple and beautiful, I'd love a little corner like this at our new house.
Lots of lovely gardens, some inspiration, a little bit of purchasing and a rather large glass of Pimms, it was a wonderful day. Thank you to the folks at Ecover for my complimentary tickets.
We had a brilliant time.
