Last weekend Gaz and I went to the RHS Malvern Spring Festival to buy flowers for the new house. We wanted to buy some peony bushes for the front garden and a climbing rose to trail up the front of the house.
It was an early start but definitely worth it. We were through the doors at 9am and it was already pretty busy. By the time we left at midday the crowds were pouring in.
There was a huge selection of flowers to buy, lots of stalls selling other garden bits and pretty gardens to walk around. There was also talks and demonstrations on all things floral.
We bought a pink David Austin climbing rose for the front of the house from a rose seller who had the most incredible selection of roses. I can’t wait for it to grow and bloom.
We also found an incredible peony specialist and bought two Sarah Bernhardt bushes for the new house.
In addition to flowers, there are vintage cars on show, food demonstrations and drinks stands.
Plus we saw the Queen of baking, Mary Berry, sporting a trademark fancy floral jacket.
I desperately wanted to buy a Japanese cherry blossom tree but we need a larger garden (and a mere £700!). I’m addicted to blossom at the moment – my cameral reel on my phone is full of blossom photos.
I left the show with an armful of Memory Lane roses for my great grandma, as we were celebrating her 99th birthday that afternoon.
We headed to Winchcombe to the super-chic Lion Inn for lunch with the family. How fabulous is the flower planter out side the pub!
My beautiful Nan, who is 99 years young.
Finally, we stopped off at nearby Postlip Hall where we are getting married in the barn this summer. How incredible is that ceiling!! Roll on August 6th…
