Not a drop to drink

Posted by Jean Vernon on 05 Jul 2009 at 03:15 PM

It's a hot and sunny day at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. The Press Office is rather warm and the water dispenser is Out of Order! 

  For some reason (?) two large bottles of water were delivered to the Press Office for our refreshment, complete with some very green and not so tasty water growths aboard. I like the idea of green water, ie eco friendly, but we won't be partaking in this algal delicacy, thanks. So unlike the wilting plants that are being constantly irrigated around the showground with drinking water, via a hose pipe, we are more than a little bit parched in here. The Long Water looks incredibly inviting. Anyone for a dip?



Fresh water was finally administered to the wilting press at 11am on Monday, some 24hours after the green (but not eco) water was first served up. Many thanks to whoever came to our rescue during the hot and thirsty Press Day.
