RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Last week I went to Chelsea Flower Showย ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒทย for the first time. The sun โ˜€๏ธ was shining which was a good start, and we spent a couple of hours enjoying the garden ๐ŸŒณ and floral displays ๐ŸŒท. ย 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 ๐ŸŒบ, another filled with huge palm trees ๐ŸŒด, another filled to the brim with lupins ๐Ÿ’. ย Some are carefully put together without a leaf out of place ๐ŸŒฟ, other displays wilder, almost out of control ๐ŸŒพ. ย The miniature gardens are really delightful ๐Ÿ’ – some of them definitely belong in fairy tales ๐Ÿ’˜. ย And people do all sorts of clever things with their displays – I really enjoyed the hanging flowers ๐ŸŒน. ย Some of the displays do seem as they have been created with instagram ๐Ÿ“ฑ very firmly in mind (I instagrammed a fair bit ๐Ÿ“ท).

Everyone at Chelsea was dressed in pastels ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š (it’s spring, almost summer โ˜€๏ธ), and I even had an ice cream ๐Ÿฆ – the kind that aren’t 99p anymore.
