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.

| Great article Neil. |
Thank you for the 4th and last article on The Chelsea Flower Show. You did a great job . 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 and some not so much , 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.

|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.

|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 . 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 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:

|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! |
Plus we have the naked bike ride through Hyde park, although that is in November, a bit cold for doing that sort of thing!

|We shall all roll naked in the dew tomorrow night, the night before the 24th June. Here in Iceland it is the day of St. John.|
Just looked out and Hebe is already naked
