Yesterday I went on a lovely day out with George and Molly to see the beuatiful sights at The Royal Horticultural Society Flower Show. We met up with lovely blogger Laura and her two little ones and had such a fab time, even if we did lose each other at times – haha!
The show looked much bigger than previous years, and we couldn’t wait to get stuck in! We arrived and the staff were really lovely; they made sure George and Molly had a wristband with my phone number written on, just in case we lost each other at any point. We were guided over to the start of the trail, given the trail booklets and off we went in search of stamps!
Once they’d collected all three it was time to collect their prize; a lovely little colouring in book and pencils. I think this was a very sweet touch, considering children are free to enter with a paying adult (2 children to one adult, adults pay £11 in advance or £14 on the day.). After the trail we had a little nose in the flower tent, and obviously George and Molly had to buy a little keepsake plant!
Aren’t those jackets fab?!
Obviously we had to have a little nose at the Wheelbarrow Show, and I voted for this beauty…
Our next stop was the family area, and there was so much to do! From making music louder from riding a bike to woodwork and more, this was a fabulous little find and it wasn’t overly crowded either. After we’d spent a while here, we headed around the corner to Out to Learn Willow and George and Molly made swords (£4 each); this was really fun and I can imagine they’ll use these for a very long time!
The late afternoon was a bit of a blur as the sun finally made an appearance! We had a little nose at the National Museum of Wales area, where Molly made a seed bomb and a plasticine turtle whilst George obsessively checked out the permeability section.
I really loved the focus on the environment and nature; there was a lot of inspiring work dotted around to really make us think about how we treat the planet.
There were so many wonderful sights to see and it was all so very visually inspiring. I particularly loved The National Botanic Garden of Wales kitchen/garden installation and we had a little chat with the lady about terrariums; something we’re definitely going to try out soon.
Here’s a little video of our day, to give you a real idea of the scale and joyous vibes at the show…
We had a lovely day out, and it was fab to meet up with Laura and enjoy the sights together. I think the Flower Show is totally perfect for families; there’s so much to see, do and learn about and I think we’ll be implementing some of their wonderful ideas within our own home and garden.
Here are some more photographs from the day…
