The picnic and Pimms is packed, the suncream applied, camera fully charged and we are ready to go!
Every year my Mum, her friend Val and I visit the biggest flower show in the world, at Hampton Court Palace. Nobody else is allowed to come with us, because nobody else has the stamina we do. We arrive before the gates open, and are usually one of the last to leave!
It is the highlight of our year, and Val even said it was better than Christmas Day - that is how excited we are to go. They are both very keen gardeners and I am obviously there to soak up and capture the beauty of the flowers and gardens.
Here are a selection of some of my images from last week.
