This post is especially for Joy, a self-confessed Dr Who fan. It was taken at the RHS Show in Cardiff just over a week ago and was awarded the best Show Garden, attaining RHS Silver Gilt standard. This garden also appeared at Chelsea last year, but was more appropriate for the Cardiff show as Dr Who is filmed in and around the city. It's actual title was A Garden in Time and was a garden of 2 halves. The first half (pictured) was contemporary in its feel and reflected the current incarnation of the Dr Who series. The second half represented a garden from the 1960s (all square lawn and serried ranks of annuals plus vegetable plot - just like many gardens in Chippenham currently) which is when Dr Who first started. The pictured TARDIS had just been switched on by the garden designer (also pictured), was revolving and playing the Dr Who theme tune. A few seconds after this picture was taken, the garden designer was inundated by dozens of primary school children, all fans of the programme.
It wasn't my favourite garden at the show - more about that later on in the week.
