Malvern 2009


By Arlene


We went on Friday 8th and despite the annoying wind and occasional downpour,
had a great day.
I have to say for the first time ever,that Carol Klein’s walk around in the floral pavilion was boring and she was not her usual enthusiastic self.
Judge for yourself!
An absolutely fantastic Allium!

A beautiful Hydrangea

Water features for the small garden~ really cool.

and a red hot parrot tulip!

some beautiful bonsai

Beautiful tulips~ Bloms bulbs.

A white Wisteria

A lovely Acer with Camassia in the foreground

and outside some friendly hippos!

and finally some white Dodecatheon

Hi Arlene, we were there on Friday too - the floral marquee was far more interesting than the plants Carol Klein chose! A shame it was such a scrum to find your way through it.

Those alliums are amazing, aren't they?

I missed some of the things you've selected so thank you! I love the hippos!

I was there from 9.30 to 2pm, hubby had enough by that time, and we had arranged to go and visit friends who live just down the road from the show ground.

Somebody should design a badge that we can all wear! lol

Sadie, it seems we were at the Shrewsbury flower show together too!

Arlene and Madmum - I was there today!! Thanks for these pics Arlene- i didnt get to see half of what you've got here! There's so much to see, I must have missed so much... As for meeting people, I had TWO friends there today and despite speaking to each other on the mobile, we went the entire day without bumping in to each other lol

Just put my Malvern pics in a blog if you're interested...
