The Chelsea Flower Show

Blogging has opened up a whole new world for me. As a creative that didn’t have many creative friends, it was difficult to express that creativity, talk about what I’d seen and discuss it with someone. I enjoy sharing experiences that I love, to inspire others. So I love having this blog space to share what I’ve seen, and talk about all the things I love. The RHS Chelsea flower show is an event I’ve always wanted to go to, it combines two of my favourite things. London and Flowers, and it did not disappoint. I have taken pictures, of my journey through the show, I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.

My top tip for your visit is, to arrive early. It gets super busy, so if you’d like the opportunity to see that little bit more without as many crowds, it starts at 8am.

I didn’t stop to take details of the talented landscapers and gardeners, as there was so much to see. Each garden was exquisite, with gorgeous colours and textures, if only I could recreate them!

The Chelsea flower show is only one aspect of the flower show and takes most of the day to go round, but you really can’t go home without a wander around Chelsea. Chelsea In Bloom is almost as good as the show and its all for free. Spectacular flower displays everywhere you turn. I love London in the spring. Its the prettiest city.
