Some of the beautiful Lilies which were on display,these were my favourites on the stand and the photo does not do them justice as they were so eyecatching.
There were not too many roses on stands but this stand was all roses, the heavenly waft of perfume made us stop in our tracks. Most of the roses did not have a smell which I think is one of the prerequisites of roses if you are going to the trouble of growing them. I sniffed all of them and I think this one was the best it is a lovely pale pink old fashioned looking rose with the most gorgeous smell.It is named after Geoff Hamilton who presented Gardener's World and other gardening programmes for years but died some years ago.It is a fitting tribute to him.
We nearly missed the replica of Michelle Obama's White House vegetable garden but more or less stumbled across it.The American flag can be just seen in the top centre of the photo.
It was not all walking ,we took time out to sit and enjoy the sun and spectacle while enjoying strawberries and champagne! There were sellers walking around with Cool packs selling them, first we were going to share but then said what the hell we will have one of each, each.My sister Kathleen on the left hiding behind the shades ,I am on the right.
One of the surprise features for us was while we were sitting we were entertained by a Barbershop group who strolled around and sang a couple of numbers and then moved on, who needs Wimbledon?!
