Chelsea Brighton
May, 2006

May 25th was our day at Chelsea! (tons and tons of pictures as you can see!) Chelsea Flower Show is the worlds most popular and renowned flower show. The best in gardening and horticulture is brought together in one place for one week in May. This is the show that you will find new plant introductions before anyone else for it is here that suppliers showcase the best of the best. When you see the Show Gardens, you will wonder how they could have put something like this together in such a short time - they look like they have been there forever! The Show Gardens at Chelsea are renowned for their superb design and plantsmanship. They are often the starting point for new trends in gardening. Designed and built by some of the world's best garden designers, you can use them for inspiration in your own garden. You will see tiny little window box gardens right up to huge magnificent show gardens and everything in between. The tents hold a wonder of plants, set up in displays that will cause you to stop in wonder. You will be assaulted with fragrances wafting in and out - lilies to strawberries - they are here and I guarantee you will never forget your visit to Chelsea. I have been going to Chelsea since 1996 and it changes and dazzles every year. (B)

Sadly, May 26th is our day of departure, and after breakfast, we make our way to the airport of choice or stay on if we have booked more time in this magical city. So much to do and so little time…but alas, there is always next year! I was still here as my Chelsea/Paris tour was starting this evening…so I visited the London Museum and walked around a bit during the day taking some pictures along the way…around every corner in London, there is something to see…
