Went to Hampton Court Palace Flower Show on Tuesday and bumped into Sally Green and Michelle Stacey from BBC 2’s The Big Allotment Challenge. They were lovely and chatted to us for ages in the Floral Marquee. Despite their glamorous looks and Michelle’s unusual taste for vintage clothes, they assured us they are real gardeners and did all the work themselves.
Then I met the lovely Carol Klein again. She was just getting ready to do ‘a piece to camera’ as they say but was more than happy to speak to her loyal fans (like me!)
In the Rose Garden we met these two characters which was a bit of a surprise!
And then, as we walked towards the Palace…….the ghost of Anne Boleyn perhaps?
The Under-Gardener and friend Linney take shelter. Amazing what a glass of Pimms can do to brighten one’s spirits in the rain!
Is that a robin in front of the two lovely ladies?
