Garden Designer on the move ... and Events in February! :)

Hello and welcome back! :)
As you may have guessed, my Garden Designer life has took over my blogging-plans :)

Once again life has reserved me some big surprises, and I found myself to be one of the six shortlisted names for the RHS YOUNG DESIGNER OF THE YEAR competition with my 'Heaven on Earth' garden.

{One of the 2012 finalist  gardens - A Prison Garden for Rehabilitation through Wellbeing by Katherine Wills}

Last Friday I have been invited to present my Design to the Judging Panel, which included the founder of one of the best London's Garden Design School, and a noted and multi-award winner Contractor. Despite my garden will not be among the three finalists, I really appreciated this great opportunity and it has been amazing to reach this point after just two months from graduation.
Another very good reason for 'neglecting' the blog is that I AM AT GREAT DIXTER AGAIN! :)
I am back to one of the greatest English gardens for another amazing learning/working experience.
Unfortunatelly there isn't a great internet connection here so next post will have to wait, but you can follow my daily 'diary' on my Facebook page or on Twitter.

Despite the great news and events, I did not forget my monthly appointment and I cherry-picked some among the most interesting garden-related events of the month.

Inaugurated by HRH the Duchess of Cornwall, the new Garden Museum exhibition is now open! 'Floriculture - Flowers, Love and Money' will be on display until the 28th of April and will bring you through four centuries of cut flowers history. I will attend it on next week and I am really looking foward to it.

16th&17 - Winter Opening Weekend at Great Dixter House and Garden
19th & 20th - RHS London Plant & Design Show
26th - Sarah Raven's Luchtime talk at the Garden Museum. A great talk by a great writer, cook, grower, broadcaster and teacher. I have been in love with her garden, books, website and catalogue since I setted foot in Uk and I am sure you will fall in love as well!
All the month long, you can pay a visit to the 'Butterflies in the Glasshouse' at RHS Wisley Garden, and to the 2013 Orchid Festival at KEW Gardens.

Further news on London-related events can be found at 'The Green in Between'.

That is all for now :) See you next week and...keep sowing!!! :)

Bisous and Baci,
