Dear Connie, not that many people have actually read it after all my Hard Work! I sometimes want to give up!
Glad you enjoyed it though, as I knew you would see it in the end.
Wait till part 2, you might like that as well!

Oh My! I LOVE flower shows. Thanks so much for sharing this, Neil. You can imagine that we here in Arizona don't get a dose of "eye candy" like you've provided.

Love the Daily Telegraph and the pillars. I so badly want a Roman pillar in my garden! .... and the mill pond too!
“Don't give up too quickly"... unknown, I heard it somewhere.

Neil, such beautiful pictures. How fortunate to be able to attend such a magnificent show.

The few flower shows in this part of the country are dwindling and/or discontinuing.

Thanks.

Neil, I love your tours of Chelsea! Please don't be discouraged if we don't all get to your articles right away... I can't always, but I always look forward to them! So then, when I have some time to linger on cubits, I can give your articles the attention they deserve. Like now, at nearly 1:00 a.m., when all is quiet. Anyway, Chelsea is just stunning and amazing. I would be one of the crazies wanting to buy some plants to have from Chelsea, I am sure!
