The Flowers, Frocks & Botanical Fantasies Tour 2013

Are you constantly embarrassing your nearest & dearest by jumping high on the spot trying to peer over a wall into someone else's gorgeous garden when out walking?

Is tagging along with an fabulous chick who has entree into private properties only seen in glossy mags right up your alley?

Does mooching around in stylish boutique hotel rooms you would NEVER have found on Trip Advisor sound good?

How about dinner each evening with a group of lovely like-minded gals from all points of the globe in chic little bistros in the English country-side?

Are you an independent traveller who can't stand Carleen the Co-Ordinator organizing each second of your waking moments on tour?

Do you have a couple of weeks free next May/June to experience things that will make your friends & family sick with envy! 

If you answered a resounding YES to all of the above, then read on dear Hedgies.

By popular demand, that lovely uber blogger Janelle McCulloch over at The Library of Design has put together her inaugural Flowers, Frocks & Botanical Fantasies Tour 2013. Boy that girl has more contacts in her address book than MOTH has excuses for not picking up a paintbrush!

The initial itinerary looks fantastic & the dates will co-incide with the 100th anniversary celebrations of the much-lauded Chelsea Flower Show. You will not have to take out a 4th mortgage on the house to fund your spot, Janelle has a unique ability to match frugal with fun.

For more information & Expressions Of Interest visit The Library here & here. When I told MOTH last night I'm off to London with the girls he didn't move a muscle. But then again, that may have been a little difficult for him tied up with rope to the chair as he was!



  1. Hilarious!
    Can I come?
    Loved the Carleen-the-Coordinator comment. We met one of those at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. Scary. (Hubster was suddenly grateful for me.)
    I'd like to do Downton Abbey's Highclere Castle too. I have a crush on Mr Bates. Can't imagine he'll be there, among the hedges, but will still be lovely to see those extraordinary rooms, don't you think?
    You'll be a great tour guide.

  2. Gosh, that sounds fantastic! LOL on hubby tied up so he can't comment. Maybe I should try that!

  3. I would love to go on the tour based purely on the name of it! It sounds like a fun trip!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Oh Mills, I'd give my right teeth to join you girls. *Sigh*. Next time...J x


And none will hear the postman's knock
Without a quickening of the heart.
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?
