|'Goal Global' garden (Gold) designed by Joan Mallon.|
Recently I attended Ireland's largest garden show 'Bloom' in Dublin. I think the show is in its 9th year however this is the first time I attended.
It was a fab show and I was very impressed. There were lots of design gardens, lots of stalls from food to crafts, and lots of entertainment. I think this is now my favourite show. In my view, it was just as good as Chelsea with added benefit of feeling fun and family oriented. Here are a few features from my visit....
|A show garden called 'Water in the Air; featured copper wire fish sculptures hanging from trees. It was awarded a Silver Medal.|
|This garden, designed by Fiann O'Nuallain, is a 'healing' garden with herbs that could be used for medicinal purposes. It achieved a Silver Medal in the small garden category.|
|This Gold Medal garden, by Alan Rudden, was lovely but expensive. Suppose that's to be expected in the Premium Garden Category.|
I opted for a two-day pass and really enjoyed all the festivities of the show. Think this will become an annual trip! More info the Dublin garden show can be viewed by clicking here.
