Green Thumb Sunday 7th October
A group of us spent Sunday at Chester Zoo, taking photos and chatting and generally having a great time! It was a beautiful day. My own garden is looking a bit drab right now so I thought instead I'd show you some of the zoo gardens this GTS. For me, one of the best things about the Zoo is not the animals but the wonderful gardens and the imaginative planting. I really enjoy a section of the Zoo planted with many different types of grasses which rustle and wave beautifully in the slightest breeze, and then there are the floral displays - imaginative and colourful.
We were all very taken with these mesh figures in various poses that appear in these flowerbeds. We weren't sure if they are going to be topiary figures eventually but even now they are eyecatching and effective. If a bit ghostly!
Finally, these wonderful purple flowers really caught my eye! I'd like some of these in the garden for next year...now can anyone tell me what they are called?
Happy gardening everyone!
