Chelsea Flower Show
May 22-30th, 2007


May 25th, Friday

This was the first of our two days of leisure so after having a great breakfast I set out to discover…you know by now I enjoy taking pictures…these are my memories, so I take a lot..I love to look at how people plant. I am also infatuated with doors…I like to peek inside gates too ? I spent some time in the garden shop, the Chelsea Gardener, then on the way I passed through St. Lukes Park, a lovely quiet place to rest and the church beside it was beautiful to look at. I got to the Sloane Square area to find some fantastic displays that the shops had put together…of course you can pick out the Tiffany Shop. Then to Peter Jones to look in the windows at the hats…inside one set of doorways they had on either side these little window displays and signs indicating that they had a special High Tea. I did go to the café but just to have a latte because I was really wanting one, I needed to rest from all the walking I did. I was amazed at this café, not only was I allowed to sit by the windows to enjoy a view 5 stories high with just a latte, but the fellow who made it was from Italy, so you can bet it was a great latte!

On my way back to the hotel, I walked past a street where the homes were very unusual…they were all painted brick. As you can see, it was so different from any other street and I guess it is the latest thing to happen now.
