Over the weekend, gardening was the buzzword alongside the Giro d'Italia world cycling race, both taking place in Northern Ireland. It was a great weekend and the colour pink popped up everywhere to support the race... even at the garden show (left).
The garden show took place at Antrim Castle Gardens, the location where my gardening group volunteers so we had the opportunity to work the plant creche at the show and had a super time. Here's a little snapshot of what I found interesting, eye catching or inspirational...
Above: ‘A Room For All Seasons’ this isn't my garden style but it looked sharp and had some great features. Part the Ulster Television (UTV) Show Garden Design Competition designed by Michael O’Reilly and Garry Foran.
|A lovely, cosy country garden - just my cup of tea! This design is called ‘Think Thyme’ designed by Marie Lavender and landscaped by Reconnect, a charity helping those with acquired brain injury.|
So much inspiration and creativity at these shows! In the coming weeks I'll be going to the Chelsea Flower Show - very excited about this!
