As Promised.. More of Chatsworth

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Has it been 10 days already? since my last post here.. Time sure is speeding up, but I have to say I really am enjoying Summer.. So as I so enjoyed my visit to the RHS Flower Show at Chatsworth earlier in June.. I still have lots of photos to share of beautiful gardens and blooms.. Where to start ..  The above slide show, shows The Wedgwood Garden exhibition, it won a Gold Medal .  Wedgwood was founded in 1759 by craftsman and potter Josiah Wedgwood. . This garden represented the classic English Feel, bring nature and the elements into peoples homes. Its design explores new materials, and re-imagines the traditional, with the attention to detail and craftsmanship at the forefront. 

I think my favourite garden though had to be this one by Jackie Knight.. It was called Just Add Water.  Water to me is essential, it relaxes and here Jackie who is stood on the stones to the right in boots, has created a space that is not  only tranquil and calm, but is a lyrical to the ear as water trickles down in various stages..  Looking at this garden it looked like it had been here for years instead of a  couple of weeks in the making..  I was disappointed Jackie only got a bronze medal for this excellent garden.

  1. Chatsworth garden looks amazing and no wonder the garden has won a gold medal and a deserving one. I sure the Chatsworth garden brought a sense of peace as well.
    Jackie Knight’s JUST ADD WATER display is beautiful and it would also be peaceful listening to the trickle of water which always hypnotizes oneself into deep reverie at times.
    What a beautiful tour you have given us and look forward to more photographs.. 🙂

  3. That looks so refreshing! I often wonder how to make a garden looked established. I think rock features and plants growing in the crevices help that along.
