The gods must have been smiling on us as we made our way to the Tatton Flower Show because the rain stayed away for the day and we were able to enjoy all that Tatton has to offer without resorting to waterproofs... and Tatton has much to offer.
We were in our element with 36 show gardens including 10 flower bed displays - all based on a sports theme this year as a nod to the greatest show on the planet being in London just now. There were also the orchestra themed gardens, community gardens, the now famous back-to-back gardens and more. So many, in fact, that we didn't know where to turn! (But only for a minute because, as ever, it was the show gardens that got - and held for most of the day - our attention right from the outset.)
