could have hoped for a little more sunshine but nevertheless
the 3rd RHS Flower Show in Tatton Park has been a huge success with
more people than ever enjoying the power of the flower. This was
my first visit and I was impressed. Living locally I took advantage
of the courtesy bus.
Many thousands of people were able to spread out and enjoy the
great variety of (mostly) horticulturally inspired displays on offer.
It is the fragrance that hits the senses, of course, and then the
superb blooms and carefully selected colour schemes showing all
the flowers on offer to perfection in the Floral Marquees. Depressingly
so - how do they do it ?
And some amazing new colours caught my eye - the very dark shades
are fascinating. So many people working so hard to create gardens
in the park in just two weeks. Small ones, big ones, traditional
pretty ones, fun ones, imaginative ones, very contemporary ones
- they were all there.
