As you might imagine everything was beautifully presented, lovely clay pots, no dead leaves and looking at their peek. The colours were gorgeous not only of the flowers but also the foliage around in the rest of the gardens. One of my favourite parts was the potting shed
There was also a wonderful exhibition by Sue Edwards who sadly died last year. Her watercolours were just gorgeous. I just had to buy this card of bluebells as the colours were lovely. If you ever get chance to see her work do go.
I loved this sculpture next to Betty's tea/coffee hut
I have to say though we were really disappointed with the coffee we bought from Betty's, just not strong enough, not that I like really strong coffee but I do like it to taste of coffee.
We wandered around for about 2 hours, I guess as the year goes on you would spend longer as there will be so much more to see, but it was very enjoyable and inspiring. You can find more information about Harlow here. We were back in time to have make a quick pasta bake and get ready to go to the Rotherham Real Ale Festival where D and I were pulling pints - but more about that tomorrow. I have bread rising in the airing cupboard that needs thumping back for ready for it's second rise so I must go.
Till tomorrow - Happy Saturday
