I am certainly no gardener, and I find it a bit of a stretch looking after the simplest of houseplants. But, having been to RHS Tatton today, I have a new vigour for all things of a flowery nature! And onions too, but more of them later.
It was my first visit to a flower show and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Some of the folks were certainly dapper.
There was so much colour.
And lots of delicate things.
There were some more scary triffid like varieties...
There were a few familiar faces.
Popped in to see Hannah in The Country Living Marquee. There were lots of people buzzing around the stand!
And bumped into Maxine Hunt from Hebden Bridge WI on her Big Black House Design stand.
Some of the designer gardens were spectacular.
I thought this looked like it should belong to the Charlie & The Chocolate Factory film set!
Then we hit the fruit and vegetable marquee and seemingly entered a different world. I loved the gooseberry display...
The Bugs Bunny carrots.
Great textures, shapes and varieties.
We had a little bit of time to get excited over the alliums!
And so it was goodbye onions, farewell Tatton, until next year...
