The Acer - A plant that's survival has always eluded my mum

  1. It looks amazing. I went one year and the weather was like it was on Friday. Scorchio! There were limited places to sit down and when we finally bagged a seat, we stayed there a long time :0).
    Not sure if they're still there, but I loved the big copper orb swings that you can have hanging from the tree in your garden. (Would have to be a big tree though..)

    1. Didn't see the copper orb swings! Yes seating was limited but my mum had been last year so knew and we took a blanket to sit on the grass. I couldn't get over just how busy it was everywhere, there wasn't one space that wasn't mobbed. And it didn't quieten at any point. But it was a buzz being in the throngs.x

  2. Stunning! Especially the Very British High Tea. I'm getting the distinct impression that you are a big fan of flowers. Would love to go to Chelsea one year. Polly x

    1. Would highly recommend it, just be prepared for it to be packed - as long as you don't mind crowds you will love it!x


I would love for you to quack your thoughts along with me and will always try and quack right back.
