Last week I went to Chelsea Flower Show 🌸🌺🌹🌷 for the first time. The sun ☀️ was shining which was a good start, and we spent a couple of hours enjoying the garden 🌳 and floral displays 🌷. There is so much to see – and there is an incredible range of flowers – a whole stand haphazardly spilling over with all sorts of fuchsias 🌺, another filled with huge palm trees 🌴, another filled to the brim with lupins 💐. Some are carefully put together without a leaf out of place 🌿, other displays wilder, almost out of control 🌾. The miniature gardens are really delightful 💐 – some of them definitely belong in fairy tales 💘. And people do all sorts of clever things with their displays – I really enjoyed the hanging flowers 🌹. Some of the displays do seem as they have been created with instagram 📱 very firmly in mind (I instagrammed a fair bit 📷).
Everyone at Chelsea was dressed in pastels 💛💚 (it’s spring, almost summer ☀️), and I even had an ice cream 🍦 – the kind that aren’t 99p anymore.
