What a fantastic experience last week, being able to visit the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2012.
After getting back and looking through the 500 plus photos that were taken, we thought it would be nice to share some of the pictures with you of our favourite gardens, those that confused and those that made us think what were they all about.
In no particular order :-

Coastal Drift – designers Susan Willmott & Adele Ford

Gardens that we did not quite understand until their concept was explained

Bridge over Troubled Water – designer Anoushka Feiler
A Very Victorian Fantasy – designers Chris Evans & David Ifould
Possession – designer Tony Smith
Looking at most gardens it was easy to form an opinion and guess what had inspired their design. But reading the written garden summaries & listening to some of the garden designers talking about them gave me a totally different understanding of the concept of the garden, what they represent and why they were built as they were.
