Award winning!

I've Just Heard!
Anthea Guthrie's Shakespeare garden at RHS Hampton Court Palace flower show has been awarded a GOLD Medal, Congratulations!

My contribution to this was three little woven lambs in white willow, the garden is called 'As you like it' designed and built by Anthea Guthrie.

Phoebe, the shepherdess in the play lives in the Forest of Arden where she has created a romantic forest garden. Her garden features a small meadow enclosed by hazel fencing, an oak stump shelter with honeysuckle around the entrance and a mossy bed.
The planting is calming and natural it includes trees such as English oak, silver birch, hawthorn and hazel. Ferns, ivy, ladys mantle, even flowering tobacco and wild strawberries are spread throughout the garden.
Those lambs are gonna be well fed over the next few days... they have broken free from the folly and may well be terrorising some of the other show gardens!
The Flower show is on until the weekend so you could see it in the flesh or BBC two are covering the show on Monday, Thursday and Friday this week around 7.30pm .
