Harrogate Flower Show

The weather couldn't have been better for our short visit to Harrogate, to see the Harrogate Flower Show.

We arrived soon after the show opened and already it was busy with many enthusiastic gardeners keen to go inside. It was a huge show, beautifully organised and well laid out. There was an extensive range of quality plants available to purchase from the exhibitors, and they were all doing a roaring trade.
The standard was extremely high and there were many awards in recognition of the quality on display.

Some exhibitors had staged fascinating interpretative exibits.

Angel in Flowers.

Swan Lake

'Brassed Off'

Many of the blooms had been arranged, with excellent effect, in brass instruments.
This was my favourite exhibit.


  1. Love the Brassed Off exhibit.. will you be making some paintings from the photos you got of it?

  2. That's what I'm aiming for Pat, once I manage to get around to painting again!!
