Chelsea first

Can't believe it's over 2 weeks since I went to Chelsea flower show, I've done so much since then. I only got chance to have a really good look at all the pictures the other day, nearly 140! there would have been even more but the camera battery went and the spare hadn't been charged (which is really unusual).
It was a fantastic day out with weather to match. We started off at Nottingham station, which is a lovely building with this ceiling

One of the first sights we saw when we stepped out of Sloane Square station was the trimming up of this shop

I know what to with any old wellies!!

Here is our first glimpses of the flower show

Busy, busy, busy and it remained like that for the rest of the day. To be fair I didn't expect it to be anything else. Here is just a flavour of the show

I absolutely loved Alan Titchmarsh's garden 'From moors to sea'. 


I just wanted to move into the summer house and live there for ever.

There was colour everywhere

Amazing flowers

even ones out of fabric and buttons

and vegetables

Dresses covered in flowers too

Displays including spices and gardening gloves

a room made out of flowers - how long would this have taken to do?

Horses out of driftwood and metal

and I have to mention the Yorkshire garden, themed for the Tour de France - can you spot the bicycle wheels?

here they are close up

floral displays

and finally D's favourite girl Carol

I could go on and on but having reviewed this post I think there is plenty for you to feast your eyes on.

We had a wonderful day washed down with a glass of Pimms whilst sat on a curb having a sandwich. I can't thank A and C enough for a lovely birthday present.

The very next day I was off down to Cornwall, sleeping most of the way down, but more of that later as now the sun is out and my garden is calling as it's in need of a good tidy round. xx


  1. All glorious.
    I haven't been to the show for years, a bit far away now, but it's a great day out!

    1. Yes it was a lovely day so much to see and do. L A xx

  2. Oh Anne, what an amazing day. Your photo's are beautiful and capture your day so well. I saw a glimpse of the driftwood horses on the Tv - aren't they amazing !
    Have a great weekend,

    1. They were quite amazing, seem to remember they were £12,000+. You'd certainly need the right kind of garden to put them in! L A x
