Back From Chelsea!

28 comments


Hello Everyone!

I’m back from Chelsea! We had four nights in London as part of our Silver Wedding Celebrations and we had a lot of fun and many treats!

It will take me a while to sort out the pictures. I’ve re-sized and named about a quarter of them so far, but it will be a while before the proper blogs start to come on here.

However, just to prove that I was there and met the most famous Goyer, here’s a couple of pics for you!

That’s me and Vicky on her wonderful Gold Medal winning Heuchera stand. We had a lovely chat…she really is a lovely lady! Anyway, while I remember, Vicky said that in spring, she feeds her Heucheras with a Seaweed plant food and that brings them on a treat. Must remember to get some tomorrow, as mine are really not doing so well this year.

Catch up with you all soon! Karen
