Visit to RHS Tatton Flower Show 2009

24 Aug

ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL…

I know the RHS Tatton Flower Show happened last month, but here are a few pics from my visit anyway…

There was glorious sunshine when we arrived as the photo below proves, but moments after this, the rain absolutely poured down, so we rushed into the nearby RHS Floral Marquee to wait it out…

There were some beautiful displays in the massive Floral Marquee (as you would expect) and fantastic, vibrant colours – some inspiration for future creations maybe?

There were some stunning displays in the Floral Design Studio marquee too, including this one which grabbed my attention as soon as I walked in – ultra modern and sculptural, its large scale can’t really be appreciated from a photo.

I also liked the use of old-school vinyl records in this music themed display – it just wouldnt look as good with CDs!

During a brief break in the rain, I walked past this outdoor display, and had to take a photo – promoting the use of recycled materials, pupils had made decorations for the School Garden display.  This particular creation represented the ‘Hey Diddle Diddle’ nursery rhyme (the one with the cat, fiddle, cow, dog, dish and spoon…) and it caught my eye because they had re-used buttons to decorate the cow and cat – an excellent choice!

Eventually, the rain beat us on the day, but on our retreat out of the Park, I noticed these beautiful deer – not bothered as we drove past them, so I had to take a quick pic…
