Yesterday was rather momentous for us I was checking my emails when an alert came in telling me the blog was five years old. Well howdee down doodee and Happy Birthday I thought to myself. It must have taken me a day to get my head round this new technology back in 2012 as I didn’t actually publish anything until the 1st of February so today is officially the blog’s 5th Birthday.
So how to celebrate this most momentous of days, well cake would be a good start, most five year olds like cake. And yet I feel it should be marked with something more and as luck would have it I know just the thing. More than cake, I know, it sounds hard to beat but I hope you’ll agree with me that finally being able to say to all and sundry
‘Ive designed a Show Garden for the new RHS Show at Chatsworth’ is better than cake.
It’s all been a bit of a secret, firstly when the design went in we didn’t say anything, who knew if it would be accepted. Secondly when it was accepted you have to keep it hush hush until after The RHS Chatsworth press release.
I’m thrilled to have this opportunity and also extremely grateful to have been advised and encouraged along the way by a fabulous mentor, thank you Paul, but beyond that the concept of this garden is something I feel passionate about. So apologies in advance but having kept quiet for so long you may, just, get sick of hearing about it.
Now who’s for some cake?

Ooh that looks lush (as they say in Bristol) 🙂 Looking forward to seeing the real thing in June!
Looking forward to you seeing it too 🙂
Congratulations! Hope you have a fabulous time creating the garden and at the show. ☺
Thank you, fingers crossed it doesn’t go all Tale of Two Cities ‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times’
Can’t wait to see it! Congratulations on both counts. Love Chatsworth
Thank you, Chatsworth is a stunning setting for a show. If you’re going to the show do say hello.
