The Met Office said the sun will come out a 19:00. Looking out of the train window at 18:30, I could only see a menacing cloud with rain pounding the carriage. After a mad dash from the train station to the show entrance, my friend and I took refuge in one of the floral marquees. We were treated to some sensuous roses and lots of fabulous looking carnivorous plants.
It didn't take too long to find the show garden by my friend Philippa Pearson. It's a fab "Room with a View" double-decker garden with lovely flowers (don't know what they are called). And while we were there, a Silver-Gilt Medal was presented to Philippa!
