A Chelsea Morning

Friday we took a pilgrimage to the Chelsea Flower Show and for once the weather was kind to us. The sun shone ,the flowers glowed and the scent in the floral pavilion was heaven. I was a little disappointed in the show gardens this year- there seemed to be fewer and many were very much the same- all sculptural lines and 'dark planting'. But all in all it was a lovely day and so inspired was I that I spent the rest of the weekend planting out all my bedding, 120 pelargoniums, 2 doz fuchsias, 36 busy lizzies, 4 osteospurnums, numerous nicotiana and a fern-(sounds rather like a song doesn't it if you added 'and all' on the end) all aided and abetted by 2 dogs and 2 cats who were probably thinking how long it would take them to dig them all up again.Now all I have to do is pray for a nice summer or the garden will be a feast of mildew and snails.
Next week its back to research for the next degree module so its a good job I've got it all done.
Hope you enjoy the piccies- lots more to come to lighten up the next couple of weeks.

Lovely pics of Chelsea - thankyou. The cottage garden would just about fit into ours! Good luck with the next module and your garden should look a picture this year as we are supposed to be having a good summer.
