I am so enjoying watching on tv the wonderful coverage we are getting.

And so many favourites and brings back memories of our visit last year.

Our Karen was there yesterday so looking forward to her many stunning photos.

And now a red poppy it was stunning.

Be my turn next year again .

Can you buy any of the plants online ?

I'm enjoying all the coverage too, got it all on series link on the Sky box so I can't miss any and can watch them all in the right order :)

Making me excited for GS next week :)

I have only been to the show once, in '97, just months before my husband died. We had a wonderful day, it is one of my treasured memories of our time together. I have watched the tv coverage every year since and enjoyed them, but this year I wish I had tickets. Ok, so I've been watching it in HD on a 50" screen this year, but it is the absence of wacky landscaping and the emphasis on allowing plants to speak for themselves in harmony with each other and creating pleasant spaces to relax in that lie behind my wish that I could experience it first hand.

I went a couple of times some years ago-- tonight I understand its 1 1/2 hours and the skybox knew the time change-- look forwards to it every year.....

I'd love to go one year - it's one of the few dreams I have! On the other hand, sitting at home & watching it on TV allows you to see it much better & without the hassle & fuss & stress & ...

You could never see it for yourself the way it is presented on TV nor see the interviews with the plot makers or other personalities. In a day, or two, you'd never get around to seeing as much as on TV!

Obviously it's nothing like being there in person taking in the sights & scents & sounds! They say atmosphere is everything & TV certainly doesn't convey any atmosphere whatsoever.
