Memories of the sultry days of summer when we were working full on with the build up of the Hampton Court Show are fading as fast as our sun tans! 

It’s hard to believe how amazingly hot it was then, not just during the build up of the garden, but throughout the week of the show as well. We started with a lush green plot in the great park at Hampton Court Palace, home to ducks, geese and deer, and the spectacular show garden that was the result of our frantic activity was a triumph. 

Throughout the 20 or so days I fixed a site camera on a 4m high pole that we made specially for it, that filmed shots for a timelapse video. It makes fascinating viewing and certainly brings back some memories for me.
