These are just a few of the small gardens.
After a while I realised that in fact what interested me with the gardens was the planting. Surprise surprise. The focal point in most of the gardens was usually some structure or folly mostly things I wanted to avoid taking photos of in preference for the plants.
See what I mean, although it would have been difficult to capture any of this lovely planting without including those ugly seats.
The other thing problematic at shows is the people, thousands and thousands like ants crawing everywhere. So to get any photos without people in was quite a feat in itself. I included the above plus people as it was something Rachel rather liked. I am not sure it would fit in her garden though.
Just the odd shot in the Marquees crowded as elsewhere. The day was so hot the hottest this year and really uncomfortable in or out of the Marquees.
I couldn't miss posting a photo of the roses.
And Rachel who accompanied me to the show, rather well covered due to the fact she is on Doxycycline which can have a very bad photosensitive reaction to sun. Yes some of you who follow my blogs have guessed, she had a tick bite recently and despite all my constant warnings she removed it incorrectly and as it had been attached probably about 24 hours we are not taking any chances. One member of the family with Lyme disease is more than enough.
