Wisley - more sculptures and getting ready for the Flower Show
Sadly, this is the last weekday I can take S with me as she starts 'big school' tomorrow so we will be limited to weekends and school holidays with her *sniff*
Things are certainly in full flow for the Wisley Flower Show which commences tomorrow (4th September - 8th September inclusive).
The stands were being laid out, displays organised and a there was a real buzz about the place.
If you've never been to the Wisley Flower Show, you really should get along. There are some amazing displays and inspirational ideas.
|Our favourite place|
|Tomatoes outside the Conservatory Cafe|
|Colour already appearing|
|Sisters and best friends|
|Robin on a Fork (£300) - very cute|
N said this was a cabbage and why would someone make a rock cabbage. They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder don't they *grin*
It was extremely busy inside the Glasshouse. The cut flower displays were all being prepared and quite a few areas were cordoned off. It was lovely to see all the work going into the presentations and we are looking forward to seeing many of the final creations during the Show itself.
|Sushi? No, flowers! Amazing displays|
|Diving In - very appropriate (£1,200)|
|Preparations through the waterfall|
Of course no walk around the Glasshouse would be complete without me sighing and smiling at the beautiful orchids on display.
|Stunning pink Passion Flower|
|These reminded me of War of the Worlds|
The displays were coming on great guns over this side. People were pushing and pulling carts of beautiful flowers along and setting up their tents.
S said this statue looked like a fairy because of the wings. She wanted to know where her arms were and said she could not use a wand properly without hands. Fair comment. N wanted to know why she was bald.
|Ephemora (Mayfly) £1,250|
|Rearing Horse £995|
|Man for All Seasons £280|
|Tattooed Lady £295 - where?|
|Made from bicycle chains - fabulous (£215)|
|Girl with Plait £2,500|
If you are off to the Flower Show, enjoy yourselves. You may well spot a little flower fairy in the shape of N wandering around with us over the next few days.
