Yesterday my dearest Mother and I voyaged to Hampton Court Palace for the flower show. We were greatly entertained by the ‘Low Cost, High Impact’ gardens.
Am I unusual in that a £7,000 – £13,000 budget for a fairly small garden seems far from ‘Low Cost’ (the one above had a budget of £10,000)? Am I, in fact, the one so hilariously out of touch that I think most first time buyers don’t have around ten grand to spend on the garden? Is it in fact the case that I am a freakishly poor person despite feeling ‘comfortable’ financially and yet I would still balk at spending multiple hundreds, let alone thousands? Only the top 10% in this country have a net household income exceeding £40,000 and we’re expected to believe that a quarter of that constitutes low cost gardening? ‘Low Cost, High Impact’ gardens that cost one grand or preferably less would be worth seeing in my view. The gardens were pretty, very much so, but the most amusement we gained was from the budgets. Frickin’ hilarious.
I will post some more pics and things once this bad case of snarkiness has worn off!
