We were in London at the Chelsea Flower Show on Tuesday. I think I may have taken too many photos, but it was a feast for the eyes and we probably won't be back (though we might). It was a wonderful experience.
I love lupins so much. So do the slugs and snails in my garden. Sigh.
I rather liked this little pond - was it? - bird bath for an Golden Eagle?
This was an Australian garden. The pink-leaved plant at the front is from South Africa and wouldn't survive here, but it was pretty.
I love these cool, dreamy colours.
This was an apothecary garden for St John's Hospice, full of plants that bring well-being.
Here it is again. Another pretty little pondy thing.
This was a garden to draw attention to modern slavery, happening behind closed doors.
Very thought-provoking. The planting was beautiful. More lupins.
There were some fun things like these grass-covered animals. Fake grass and, yes, fake animals.
Clematis in the big tent.
These bird baths were for sale. Tempting but a bit large to take home on the train.
And we managed to meet up with Daughter 2 both the evenings we were in London, which added to the pleasure, though we didn't like leaving her behind.
