|"Colwell" Miniature zonal pelargonium|
Hybridised by Brian West and introduced through Denmead Nursery, “Colwell “is a miniature zonal pelargonium. The semi-double flowers are a dark peach colour and the leaves are green. This is a cross between Peggy West and Little Alice.
I went to The RHS Hampton Court flower show on Sunday with my friend, Marie. We had a wonderful day. It is a really huge show and we think we saw pretty much all of it. Yes, we did buy some plants – even though Marie was quite definite that she would not! Sadly I did not get any pelargoniums. Fibrex Nursery had had a very good week and did not have anything I wanted.
Here are some of the photo’s I took – enjoy!

|We loved this chap in the Floral Exhibits marquee|
|Marie is wondering if anyone will notice if she swaps her red shoes for these on the display|
|This won the Gold Medal - the entire dress was made of flowers|
|We were not sure if we would want this skeleton sitting in our garden - or even the chimpanzees|
|I'm not sure my husband would cut the grass if our lawn was like this|
|Ready - Aim - Flower|
|We wondered what these people were looking at|
|This is what - all done with mirrors|
|There was a fire pit in the middle of this display|
Another peep show
|Looking at the maize - not sure I would want either of these in my garden, although the second one with the ferns instead of the maize would be OK|
|I wonder if I can get my husband to build one of these for our wheelie bins|

|I thought these were 'neat'. They are the topiary shapes you can buy in the garden centre - filled with moss and then these succulents grown in it. They make a good alternative to the usual box plants.|
