Chelsea Flower Show
A couple of months ago (yes this post has been a looong time coming) I was lucky enough to be offered a chance to go to the Chelsea Flower Show. It is not very far from where we live and it has always intrigued me so despite being rather large, tired and pregnant, I jumped at the opportunity. I had a great time waddling around and checking out all of the incredibly beautiful flowers.
Although I am not a very avid or skilled gardener, what really blew me away was the creativity and beauty on display. The gardens were just so carefully thought out and beautiful and skilfully put together - even the stands in the big marquee were phenomenal. One of my favourites was the Queens head above (also check out how happy the guy on the other side was!). The colours and the textures created by all the different flowers were so impressive and it is such a cool idea.
I was pretty much in awe of all the different varieties of flowers. This one above really caught my eye, because of the colour but also because of the sort of watercolour effect it had going on in the middle.
There were lots of interesting things to see and do - and if you are into gardening, I am guessing this would be heaven..because the amounts of stalls selling fun and creative gardening products was pretty overwhelming! I think with all of these events and things that go on in London there were A LOT of people and so after a while it did start to get a bit overwhelming. If you ever get the chance to go though, it is a great day out and I would definitely recommend it!
