Chelsea 2009 - a bit late!
I took my daughter to the Chelsea Flower Show on Tuesday afternoon as a treat, as it is her birthday at the end of May. Hubby’s Christmas present of RHS membership meant we could go on a members day. I would have taken a lot more pictures had I been on my own, and probably would not have completely forgotten the Courtyard Gardens (my favourite bit!). I’m so glad I decided to forgo the Pimm’s if that was the price, Peter!
I am also glad in a way that I did not have time to write this blog for a week – it means I won’t be duplicating any of the Chelsea 2009 photos already posted.
They are just things that caught my eye, and some of them won’t have appeared on the BBC’s excellent coverage. It was sometimes a bit difficult to get near the stands where they were recording, though, and they seemed to need an ARMY of technicians, etc. wherever they went!
A bit difficult to swallow?
This undersea garden created out of succulents was so cleverly done, complete with lighting mimicking underwater and sounds of the waves. It deserved the Gold Award it won.
……….and flowers not so real!
This last one is MY sort of garden – it is currently my screensaver until I get bored with it!
