The Chelsea Flower Show 2011 (Part 4)

By NEILMUIR1
June 21, 2011

This year's Chelsea was a resounding success, both for the visitors and exhibitors alike; a truly captivating array of colour and wonderful horticultural skills, in what are unfavourable economic times. All I saw were smiles and looks of disbelief, as people met old plants they knew, and new plants they had never seen before. So join me on a last trip around Chelsea, before I can put my boots away for a short time.

Hurray! Hurray! Great article Neil.
Thank you for the 4th and last article on The Chelsea Flower Show. You did a great job I tip my hat to you. . I particularly loved the Hilliers stand pictures which were like a fairy tale garden. The little hut with the roses was also my favorite. And there were many other interesting features, some I liked Smiling and some not so much Blinking , for instance the air conditioning, which might be very practical in some very hot places.

Take good care of yourself to prepare for the next big show, and give Sarah a big hug from me.

Best regards,
Magga

Dear Magga, I know you are a Dog lover but Phoenix has been with on the many lonely nights on the computer doing these Articles! Often going out on her hunting expeditions and leaving me a present by the back door! She has been a faithful companion through hours of work. Always sat near me on Guard, and ready for a stroke when things go wrong!
I am bust tomorrow cooking for my three nieces and the rest of the family. No Article until July!
My most Kindest Regards, and put a top on your topless statue. Rolling on the floor laughing

Dear Neil, Yes I am a dog lover, but I am a cat lover too, although I think it would not be practical to have a cat and a dog at the same time Rolling on the floor laughing . I had a cat when the younger set of my children were born. I had to stay at a hospital a few times, and when I returned home my loving cat always greeted me with a cute little mouse. Although I am not very fond of mice Rolling my eyes. I did love the gesture my cat showed me and she a got a few extra strokes for the mice.

Neil this is the 21st century, and my lovely Hebe is free to show what she likes in my garden. :biggrin:

Take care,
Magga

Dear Magga, I joke with you as it is our Humour. You see worse than that walking down our streets everyday and in the Newspapers! We do have a Naked Gardeners day here in the UK. However thank goodness I have a gravel garden and not a lawn, the mind boggles cutting the grass naked! Rolling on the floor laughing
Plus we have the naked bike ride through Hyde park, although that is in November, a bit cold for doing that sort of thing!
Regards.
Neil.
