a couple of sundays ago, i went to RHS cardiff in bute park. laura from side street style invited me along – how could i say no? we actually went together last year too.

when spring comes around after a seemlingly endless winter, it’s always wonderful to see flowers come into bloom, trees begin to bustle with leaves and the skies are blue. as much as i enjoy seeing flowers and nature in general come back to life, it’s always going to be a special treat to go to a flower show, a place literally dedicated to flowers, gardens and nature!

firstly i want to say thank you to edwards coaches, as i wouldn’t have been able to go to rhs cardiff without the tickets i won on their twitter!

rhs cardiff was located in bute park, which, if you don’t know it, is the park that runs behind and alongside cardiff castle. as i said, i won a pair of tickets and laura (and her lovely children) from side street style joined me on the saturday date. of course i would have enjoyed such an event by myself, but anything like this is always better with someone!

if there has ever been an everlasting love in my life, it’s flowers. no matter what, i’m always going to love them. whether they’re in the wild, store bought, a pattern on a dress or trinket, or in a painting. whatever their form, the love is strong. for as long as i can remember they’ve been, well, almost a part of my identity it seems.

nature, in general, has always spoken to me, to the deepest part of my soul. it’s my nourishment on so many levels. my feelings are those to which i can’t put into words. i’m by no means a writer, but i can generally find a way to say what i want to say. it may not be eloquent or read particularly well but what i’m thinking typically finds a way out.
