I’m offering another picture for dreaming – the view looking down a path framed with garden arches at Chatsworth House. We visited the garden for the first time last year on the same day as the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show.
Too tempting to miss, we thought, as we could see how splendid it all looked on the hillside across from the showground. So was that a good idea? Yes, I do recommend a visit but no, not on the same day as a flower show, not unless you have lots of stamina and are willing to feel slightly haunted that you missed something by running around too fast then being (courteously) ushered out by the gardeners.
It does seem ironic to write this when we can’t go anywhere, and a thirty minute stroll there would be heavenly, but you know what I mean.
Sadly, there will be no 2020 show, but at least some horticulture related businesses are booming. I was amazed this morning to see that Sutton’s Seeds has a waiting list to get on to their website – 3,532 people ahead of me. I hope all those seeds are going to get planted!
