Tavistock Garden Festival






Having been exposed to a very high dose of 'Chelsea' all week, 

you would think that I'd be all gardened out!

But no! The Chelsea Flower Show inspires me, year in, year out!

I do, however, think that the Chelsea Flower Show is far too

'personality heavy' ; that there is a certain level of pretentiousness;

 and also that, over the years, the large gardens have become too 'gimmicky'.


Nevertheless, I do love to see new young designers, such as Hugo Bugg,

shining through and I always look for and love the simple, yet effective,

artisan and cottage garden displays.


Thus, when I read that there was a Garden Festival in

a 'town near us', this weekend, I was keen to take a look.






And so...on Monday, we visited Tavistock Garden Festival, which was held in

 and around the town hall....and it was most definitely a riot of colour!





Visit it with me...oh do!!!




The display above actually won the prize for the people's choice.

This was Wendy Hicks Plants













But it was all very lovely!

At the moment,I'm loving Foxgloves and Primulas!












It was a fine bank holiday morning and Tavistock 

was full of flowers, was bathed in sunshine and was covered in blue sky.

What could be better than that?!

Simply lovely!
