I thought I'd combine my occasional HAVING A NOSEY feature to show you a
little of what I saw and loved at Bloom .
My Absolute favourite garden was the Ag cur Baisti garden
by Anu Green Designs.
What an amazing rooftop garden,
I've never seen vertical planting
quite as brilliant as this
Even more brilliant was the fact that this was an outdoor shower area
More of their vertical planting against a stunning
black/slate coloured backdrop
This is from the Urban Native garden by Doylescapes,
I have tried and failed to plant a chamomile lawn,
but this is a really clever way of doing it ,a perfect combination of soft and
more from the urban native garden
This is the garden Sheena Vernon created on a miniscule budget,
Love the clever use of pallets for garden chairs.
Big on my favourites list was this, The great escape by Fiann O'Nuallain
The photo doesn't do it justice as I don't have a wide angle lense
but this was a huge mound of earth covered in beautiful wild flowers
with 2 huge oars on either side with the most stunning blue wall
as a backdrop.
Lurene Tallons The Jewel Garden,
More vertical gardening from Maximilian Temper,
Vegetables ,herbs and fruits all growing on this wall
Niall Maxwells Weekend review
The secluded water garden by Frazer McDonogh Designs
The blue wall in the background belongs to the
great escape garden but doesn't it really work here too?
Keelings naturally fresh garden, a magical and fruity garden
that everyone I spoke to loved. It was just so quirky.
The day we were installing the mosaic pieces a family of
ducks came down and settled into the water feature,
they were being referred to as the avant garde ducks.
Aubergine garden :Dominick Cullinane Landscapes
The Translucency garden of Liat and Oliver Schurmann
And I can't resist just a little few more photos
of Gary Foran's Harmonium garden .
This is a shot of the water feature with my mosaic panels
in the background
At the end of the show we took barriers and ropes away to
get a better shot of the entire garden.
Another harmonium close up, This one shows the water drops
that were the symbol that inspired my design for the mosaic
A rare plant species: treenager
My favorite of the 263 photos I took,
It's my mother-in-law, Eileens hand and glasses,
and the plant she bought me .
