Look who I met at Chelsea Flower

Look who I met at Chelsea Flower Show yesteday, Medwyn Williams! What a nice Welsh man :) I just stopped by and asked if I could have my picture taken with him for my gardening blog. He took my hand and said I can do one better than that, come and hold my gold medal. How cool is that!

We had an amazing day but this was my highlight! The weather was brilliant, we sat and listened to the band eating our small picnic and saw the lock garden by Leeds Council. We picked up free seeds and shopping bags and I even saw Alan Titchmarsh up high on the BBC recording stand.

I'm off to the garden centre today to spend my birthday gardening vouchers. Have a great bank holiday weekend. Amanda x

Apparently on our local radio the guy from Leeds council was almost in tears over the gold award.
Glad you had a good day!

I'm not surprised it was our favourite garden. We are off on a canal boat holiday in October based around Rugby, can't wait.

Looks like you had a great day. How nice of Medwyn and what a treat for you. I'm really pleased for the Leeds City Council team, though I prefer the garden they designed last year. My favourite this year is the M&G garden. Hope you get some lovely things with your vouchers.
