I went with Jim's parents the like 2 days after I got back from a trip to America so I was on heavy jet lag, but it was absolutely amazing! It's the largest flower show in the world! And, it's on the grounds of my personal favorite palace, Hampton Court Palace, which is so close to my house! The grounds are taken over for a few days, gardens are created, ponds put in, tents put up, a cottage was even built for a contest drawing and all of it is put back to the way it was before the show when the show ends. How cool is that?! It was so cool. There are different contests, people with the best plants of different types, vegetables of different sizes, and the people who grow them sell some of their seedlings and trees and such in the tents as well! There is also a section of out door garden kit and decorative items like pots, furniture and statues, it's great! I want to go back when we get the new house sorted and get some stuff for the garden, it was so cool! I loved it and have to go back again sometime. This year we missed it because we were on the cruise with the family. But, next year I'm there one way or another!
