Its a bit of a family tradition or ours to go to the Harrogate flower show. I've been going to it all long as I can remember and I love it. It nearly always rains and this year we weren't let down, there is such a joy in seeing ladies dressed up to the nines ankle deep in mud and clutching brolly's against the rain :) I love the rain and while everyone made for the cover of the indoor areas I was able to wander around and see the show gardens without having to elbow my way through the crowds.
This was my favourite of the show gardens. Silver birches, alliums, wisteria and other beautiful planting in purples and whites, makes the perfect garden to relax in.
It was a great day and I look forward to the Autumn show. Now I just needs a few days of nice weather so I can get everything planted and the garden spruced up.
