So another week flew by and we were all busy! Monday last week I was sorting out things for the weekend just gone, as well as grocery shopping and getting ready for DH and I being away in London. Tuesday we headed off to London leaving the Boys to look after Miss Coco who had a terrific time with them whilst we were away. We had a business meeting on the Tuesday but Wednesday we had tickets to go to The Chelsea Flower Show. The first time we went was in 2019 and really enjoyed it. However we were quite disappointed this year as all the designers had seem to have forgotten it was a Flower Show!!!
Warning Picture Heavy Post!!!!!
All of the above pictures are of the Main Show Gardens and as you can probably tell, they are all alike. In fact they had all gone for a theme of re-wilding and I really feel that they are not gardens. Also you can see there is a lack of flowers!
The following were all taken in The Grand Pavilion where the stands were by various Nurseries/Garden Centres etc. Again not much colour.
Beautiful Lily Of The Valley plants. My Grandfather had them growing under the fruit trees in his garden and the smell was wonderful when they were out but again they will not grow in our garden at all!
I will show you some more pictures of London tomorrow. Will we go back to Chelsea Flower Show next year? Not sure. The whole point of Chelsea is for Designers to show you spectacular gardens and for you to be able to take a part of it and incorporate it into your garden, slugs and snails willing. In fact we have more flowers in our garden at the moment than Chelsea had!! Here are a few I took before we went away.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a good week to come. We have an extra long Bank Holiday weekend this coming weekend for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. I will be back tomorrow with more pictures of our visit to London.
Hugs & Love, Susie xx
