Dubai International Garden Competition

Thanks to a mention in Time Out Dubai, I heard about the Dubai International Garden Competition this weekend just in time to run over there and snap a few shots. Chelsea Flower Show it wasn't, but there were many beautifully styled spaces to admire and I spent a lovely hour wandering the installations and listening to the cooling trickle of the numerous water features on display. 



Some of my favourite areas were those that worked well with the Dubai climate, adding sparkle with glass and mirrors and creating shade making it possible to enjoy the outdoors year round. I have certainly picked up more than a few ideas for when it's time to plan a garden of my own.
