I am posting a few more pics while this is still working!
The water feature is part of one of the prize winning show gardens.The champagne bottle for the celtic Tiger party we thought would never end, pouring down into glasses (hard to see in the water) underneath are broken mirrors to signify the broken dreams! The furniture was made from pallets cut up and painted white and white canvas bags were hung on the back wall with herbs and flowers.
The allotment is also from one of the show gardens and showed a lovely scene with lots veg packed in.

As the snake handler was telling me how dangerous this snake could be I looked over to see my son taking a photo of the said snake with his phone barely 10 cm from the snake's head.

Great photos from everyone, we all took same photos but different angles! I am putting up two of the Keelings garden, I know some people did not like it but I loved it and so did all the kids I saw going through it. It may make kids look at fruit and veg in a completely different way, think Willy Wonka doing fruit instead of chocolate! Laughing Laughing Laughing

thanks to the Irish gardeners forum for the free tickets,we really enjoyed it .i didn't grow flowers ever in our garden all the space was for vegetables.going to bloom gave us an insight that flowers aren't useless waste of space.bloom has opened our eyes ,a garden should be a feast for both body and soul. the variety of flowers and the combinations of plants was brilliant. the show gardens tackled everything from sustainability ,climate change plants suited to our future climate conditions .a few were a bit strange but the winning garden was well worth a gold medal.we saw the late late show and TV 3 coverage of bloom ,the TV could not give a taste of the festival .i would totally urge people to visit bloom in 2010 its a great day out .we went with our 3 boys jack aged 9 arran aged 7 and ben aged 9 months ,i can definitely say there was somthing for all of us we gave 6 hours there and we all enjoyed it
