Chelsea Flower Show

Hello from London.  After many attempts to see the Chelsea Flower Show I have actually managed it this year ... and I'm suffering from sensory overload!  It has certainly been worth the wait - this show really is every gardener's dream.

  1. Making me homesick!

    Someone described the Chelsea Flower show as 'rather good rings on rather grubby fingers' - wonderful!

  2. Love the Chelsea Flower Show, have only been once but it left me with a lifetime of very special memories.
    Love your blog too and was very concerned not getting my daily fix!
    Best wishes

    I made a horse similar to the one in your photograph once for the Bong Bong races years ago. I must did it out.

    Thanks for your lovely email last week, I would love to catch up with you when you're back in the Highlands.

    It's been raining here ever since you left. Which is great for our gardens.

    Have a wonderful holiday,

  20. Hi Leigh,
    ohhh yes Chelsea Flower Show is the greatet on earth.... lucky you. Enjoy your stay in London...

  21. Fabulous images. I absolutely love to garden. So glad to have found your blog.

  22. How beautiful is all is! I love the shot of the hyacinths and peonies... and that horse would be a big hit here. Thanks! Maryanne:)

  23. I am GIDDY over this post! The photos are amazing...every one. Thanks for sharing with those of us who wish we were there!

  24. Hi Leigh, well must say, I'm jealous with a capital J. Such garden awesomeness, you must be loving it. Lee :)

  25. Seriously, it looks like heaven.
    Flowers - all behaving good.

  26. Oh Leigh,
    Isn't Chelsea just the best flower show EVER ?!! The show gardens are out of this world, as are the smaller gardens. I loved the lock which was so realistic. The Australian garden was so emotional, as they were meant to be there last year but lost all of their plants and even lives in the bush fires. They were all in tears when they got their gold medal.
    .... and, the perfume in the tent is out of this world.....the sweet peas are intoxicating.
    Fabulous post, fabulous photographs and I'm sure that you are having a fabulous time. XXXX

  27. Oh, that is gorgeous!

  28. Gorgeous!! You are one lucky lady. I have always wanted to attend the Chelsea Flower Show. I read about it each year and long to go...

  29. b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l

  30. I can understand the "sensory overload"! The photos are gorgeous. What a fun thing to be able to do!

  31. I have always wanted to go! Thank you
    for taking me there with your beautiful
