A 100 years of Chelsea

Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to go to the Chelsea Flower Show and this year, because of a special friend, I was able to go (many thanks for thinking of me J).

I went with another friend and even though the heavens opened and we got wet through we enjoyed the whole experience very much.

This year was the shows 100th anniversary…

There were beautiful show gardens with lots of lovely ideas to take home…

love the texture in this path – not sure how comfortable it would be to walk on!

what a great idea – pebbles painted with sayings and pictures.

Amazing flower displays in the pavilion…

This particular nursery (sorry - can't remember which one) set out to breed 100 new varieties of lily to celebrate this special anniversary. The stand was soooo scented - gorgeous.
