Our Sandringham Flower Show DiaryLeave a Comment
We got there! The garden got finished in time!! After 2 weeks of blood, sweat and nervous breakdowns – it was completed!! But bloomin’ heck it was hard work! No time for frivolity or messing about this time – it was just solid work from dawn to dusk! The lads worked their socks off (literally) and were a great team – coping with everything that was thrown at them including me being a bossy†bitch troll†continuously for a fortnight! Yes this build was certainly not without its panics but we got there in the end.
We were awarded a gold medal and and the judges loved it! Which was great to hear. We also had a royal visit and some rather well known faces came and looked around the garden including Dame Judy Dench and food critic Matthew Fort.
It was a risk this time – using very striking colours that are not everyone’s cup of tea – but we felt we had to do something different to show that we don’t just do theatrical – we knew from the start that using black as the main colour was going to divide opinion into the love it and hate it camps but weren’t prepared for just how many loved it! It really surprised me anyway!
So here are some pictures just to whet your appetite – there will be more to follow (better ones as these were taken by a very tired me on Tuesday evening) and lots more on our main website so keep checking back to see them!††I’ll also tell you more about the theme and inspiration behind it so stay tuned! – Jane
