Number 1 - arid
and on Monday when it was really hot it felt very apt; and yet and yet something about it did not quite sing to me. Cannot explain it, it just did not ring my bell.
Number 2 - lupins
Lupins were not everywhere, but where they were they made a real statement. I love lupins.
Number 3 - irises
Irises were everywhere, often red or muddy brown, but no one, no one used them as well as Hugo Bugg in the RBC Waterscape Garden.
Anyway, enough of trends, the next (and I think final) post on Chelsea Flower Show will look at a different aspect I think as there is more going on than just gardens.
