Had a lovely day at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show at the weekend. It was my first time there and first impressions were good. Thankfully they stayed good too. If you've never been the site itself is impressive... (well, if it was good enough for Henry VIII...) and as you approach the flower show you are allowed glimpses of Hampton Court Palace and some of its gardens - it definitely looks worth a visit in its own right.
The show ground feels immense - we were there all day and we still felt that we hadn't covered everything but by the time of our departure our senses were well and truly saturated. Around every corner there was something to grab our attention and to say that we all regressed to 'kids in a candy store' mode it will probably give you an idea of our response! Here are some of our favourite bits... (click on the thumbnail images for a larger view!)
