One of my very favourite places in Yorkshire to take the girls to is RHS Harlow Carr in Harrogate. I love it here all year round but being that tulips are my favourite flowers, Spring time is beautiful here. They have such amazing imagination - I am in awe!! I wish I had a beautiful garden to recreate, or even partially recreate, some of what they do but sadly we have a postage stamped sized garden and it sits facing to the North making it fairly dark and shady. On saying that, we do the best we can and I still love looking out onto the garden from the kitchen, especially when our clematis is in full bloom . I have been forcing my love of "twolips", as Mia calls them, on to the girls and they now can point them out from a mile away!!
