Despite a few articles in the press before the show wondering what Chelsea will be like in the financial crisis, plus their normal doom & gloom; the horticulturalists and everybody else involved in the world's most famous flower show gave them all a quick lesson in how it can and should be done!

I love your pictures. I couldn't get near enough to the show gardens to take any, well at least not from a sensible position, it was so crowded, and hot, on the Tuesday.
The pavilion seemed much cooler than the outside area and less crowded, and wasn't the air just full of the perfume of flowers? Quite a few people sneezing too with all that pollen Sticking tongue out

Do you have more pictures to share?

Dear Carol, there are a few simple survival rules at Chelsea. When you hear that there is a "celebrity" announced on the loud speakers in a show garden or see a camera crew going one way, go the other way!
It also helps if you are ex Army and have played Rugby a lot, for then you can get through the crowds to where you wish to go to as people get out of the way.
Of course if you know Chelsea like the back of your hand as I do, that is a bonus. For you can judge what time to go where.
Here is another picture.
Thank you for your comments!
Regards.
Neil.
