Tatton Park Show - 2012


By teegee


Hi all

I once again had the pleasure of visiting this show on Friday (20th) and these are a few of the pictures I took, all 200+ of them.

I have submitted them in the form of a ‘slide show’ simply because there are too many pictures to upload individually!

So get a drink (of your choice) and sit back and watch the show.

If you use the ‘show info’ button the abbreviations are as follows;

BB=Back to Back Gardens
F&V=Fruit and Veg
FB=Flower Bed competition
NAFAS= Flower Arranging
OG=Orchestral Gardens
SG=Show Gardens
Soc=Various Societies
TS=Trade stands
VG=Visual Gardens
WS=Worldskills competition
YD=Young Designer of the Year competition

I enjoyed this show on Friday evening on TV and thought it was much better than Chelsea from the viewers point of view. To see all these extra photos of what we could not see in half an hour is wonderful. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Teegee, you make a great photo journalist and blogger! Great to view so many photos, so thanks for taking the time to share. My favourites included the garden with violins used as hanging planters and lots of the school gardens (The Clangers, The Wombles, Tales of the Riverbank) - this might just be me showing my age! So many of the gardens had such amazing themes and names (Enchantment, Ring the Changes), now I want to give my garden an inspirational name! (anything has got to be better than "oot the back" ....)

Thank you for your comments they are appreciated!

For anyone who is interested, I have taken to adding 'blogs' to my website, and have started with a series of 'blogs' from this show.

The difference with these against the one I have published here on GOY is; I have added the thoughts behind the exhibits.

These 'blogs' can be found here;
