#TBT.

#TBT of Lockdown Week 8!!!  Not much seems to be happening although they did say that garden centres would start to open.  However when they opened a rubbish tip in Birmingham last week they had 150 cars queuing to get in!!!!  So I suspect there will be long queues to get in to the garden centres especially with the social distancing still being a requirement and not too many people in at a time.  I don’t think I am going to bother.

Anyway I thought for my #TBT for this week would be DH and my trip to The Chelsea Flower Show last year.  It should have been on next week but obviously, as with everything else, it has been cancelled, although they are doing a virtual one on line.

We were very lucky the day we went as it was sunny and warm.  The bees were out in force.

This company sell green houses but their garden in front was very much a cottage garden.

This garden was in the big tent and went from very pale colours moving through to very dark.  I just loved the pinks.  It was my favourite stand.

The other side of this stand was a great veg plot.

These are my most favourite of flowers ever, Delphiniums.  I used to be able to grow them at our old home but cannot here as the wretched slugs and snails eat them.  However I have sewn some seeds again this year to see if I can get them to flower.

This was my favourite Garden at the show, The Welcome to Yorkshire Garden.  Unfortunately  because of the crowds I couldn’t get a complete picture!

This is a tiny sweet pea that I have not been able to find to buy just yet!!!

I hope you enjoyed a look back at the flowers from last year.  We are still hoping to be able to go the RHS Hampton Court show which has been moved to September but who knows.  We are now waiting to hear if we will be able to go up to Scotland in August.  At the moment they are saying no travel to The Highlands at all, so it is another wait and see!!!! 

I hope you are having a great Thursday, it will soon be the weekend!!!!  Stay Safe.

Hugs & Love Susie xx

    I’ve always wanted to try to grow delphiniums. I’ve got a spot picked out and I think I’m going to try this year.
