Chelsea did not disappoint this year at all - well apart from the damp and dreary weather. We managed to avoid the one heavy down pour by heading into the main marquee.
I loved the floral displays by the very talented florists. This years theme " hats" looked fabulous all decked out with the little furry rabbits ears leaves and beautiful orchid flowers, here are a few of my favourites.
The large show gardens were as usual brilliant but this year for the first time I preferred them to the small gardens. The small gardens which are normally my favourite didn't work for me. I did however like the rhubarb and custard garden
An interesting inscription, we had better take good care of our little bees, the work they do is invaluable to human life.
I have created a couple of collages of the other Chelsea highlights.
The orchids were breathtaking, I particularly love the auriculas. My Mother in law bought me two packets of seeds which she has promised to grow for me. She is very green fingered so I am keeping my fingers crossed.
I got this Royal Worcester tea pot for £2.00 and also a very pretty cup and saucer and little jug for another £2.00.
