The Chelsea Flower Show 2011 (Part 3)

By NEILMUIR1
June 14, 2011

Although the first show, The Great Spring Show, goes back to 1862 it was not until 1913 that the show was moved to the Grounds of the Royal Hospital at Chelsea. It immediately took the name of Chelsea, and has been the Chelsea Flower Show ever since. It has always been an international show and with modern transportation anything is now possible at this amazing event. Join me on yet another march around Chelsea.

Dear Cherie, glad you liked it when you eventually found it! I do not know if you will like Part 4 as it has fountains and garden ornaments, gazebos and things in it!
Plus other Show Gardens you have not seen etc.
Not long to rest my boots as I am going to the worlds biggest flower show at Hampton Court Palace, soon!
Although Nancy will probably call it a Castle and upset someone! Rolling on the floor laughing People have been taken to the Tower of London for worse that!
So they are having an Alice in Wonderland garden there with a Mad Hatters tea party! I should fit in nicely! Rolling on the floor laughing
That is if I do not get run over by a tractor or fall in the river!
Group hug
Neil.
