Recent events have left me feeling sad.
Visiting the Chatsworth Flower Show this week helped cheer me up.
I wrote my review while looking out over the amazing view.
Chatsworth never fails to fill me with pride.
The English have a great history in creating landscape gardens.
Sheffield University Department of Horticulture , headed by Nigel Dunnett, was well represented in the Beautiful Borders section.
Some took inspiration from the surrounding Peak District.
The Floral Marquee
was crammed with plants.
The Garden societies were well represented.
This is a chance to think about mixing with fellow gardeners.
Elsewhere, clothing gear was everywhere.
This is a super venue to meet people and talk about gardening.
The show continues until sunday.
