Chelsea flowershow 2012, and a bit more........


By hanne


The evenings gets longer and I have a bit more time to use by the computer, so it´s time for some pictures from my jouney to London this spring. It was my second Chelsea Flowershow and I simply love it. Both in 2011 and 2012 I asked questions on this website, it has been very usefull for me and my friends.

I like all the flowers, stuff and happy people at Chelsea, I talked to a lot of people I just met for a while. So I have chosen some pictures wich hopefully shows the atmosfere.

We also went to Chelsea Physic garden, very nice but very small. We went to Regent park, wich again was very wonderfull, but this year the roses were not in bloom yet. On the last day we saw Wiesley Garden, and we were very impressed, I wish to go there another time perhaps in start July.

Next year I don´t thing I manage to have the money for a trip, but in 2014 I hope to try Hampton Court Flowershow.

I´am happy to know this website, and I take a look from time to time, and I hope to show some pictures from my own garden again this winter. A lot has happened for example: I´am starting to build a ruin soon, because I was given some used bricks. So far I´am just thinging and drawing a bit.

Taken in Chelsea physics garden, I would like this balcony overlooking the garden.

From the garden museum. The museum is very small and so a the garden, but a nice place with a god cafe, you can visite the cafe and eat in the garden without paying intrance fee.

I am still hoping someone took some photographs of the Alpine Garden Society stand.

You took some very nice photos. I really liked the one showing all those cacti. They're my favourite plants :o)

I do not have pictures from the Alpine Garden Society, normally it is not my favourite. BUT when I saw the alpine plant - greenhouses and beddings - in Wisley I was very impressed. Have you seen that Diane?

Normally I don´t like cacti, but I liked the nice guy. He looked so ´cool´, I spoke a few word with him.

I have other pictures of cacti, perhaps I show them one day Hywel. My husbonds father and mother once had a cacti nusery here in Denmark. But now a days cacti is not that popular in Denmark.

I can't understand why people don't like cacti. They are so fascinating.
I would be interested to see your photos.
