Weekend in the garden


What a wonderful weekend with such glorious weather We spent the whole weekend in the garden pottering and relaxing thinking of the wonders of Chelsea with all it’s crowds, Chelsea’s expensive Champers and Pimms tents; Did we miss Chelsea this year sitting quietly sipping Pimms looking at the roses just about to burst into flower the clematis clinging to the garden fence the smell of our honeysuckle filling the evening air. Did we miss the heat of the crowds the swelling feet and aching legs and a very long drive home; No we jolly well didn’t !!! Which leaves a question, Are we getting to set in our ways or just getting wiser???

I think you're getting wiser Mavis. I went to Chelsea a few years ago, enjoyed it, but it was a long day and expensive and there was nowhere to sit down and rest awhile. A nice glass of wine sitting looking at my own garden is more enjoyable.

I`ve never been but in the heat we had at the weekend I definitely think you had a better time in your own garden Mavis, the blogs from people who went are smashing so I get to see it through other very nice members photo`s and blogs....
