The Chelsea Flower Show 2012 (Part 2)

By NEILMUIR1
September 1, 2012

The Chelsea Flower Show is an eagerly awaited event after our long winter. It is the first time everyone gets together and can see the new plants as well as creations of sculptors and artists. A lot of gardeners use it as a social event, or to order sensational plants for the coming season in whatever variety interests them. On the final day a lot of the plants are sold off and London is awash with a sea of plants. It is a truly amazing sight!

Dear Vicki, I wish you were there with me having a cool drink due to the heat that day! I do hope you can join me at my Hampton Court Palace Articles It was an almost perfect day for taking photos after three months of rain! Some of the photos even I was pleased with, and that is saying something!
One hopes you are well?

It took me awhile to get to the end of this last article Neil. The photos are amazing, so sharp and clear that even my old eyes could see them clearly.
What a treat, it is an article that I need to read over again, as I can't take it all in at once. So many things to discover in those photos. It's like a treasure hunt.

Thank you so much Neil. Group hug
