London's Chelsea Flower Show

One of the absolute highlights of my year is a visit to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. This year I was lucky enough to spend a day there with my good friend Ruth. The Flower Show always puts everyone in a happy mood, and this time, the glorious weather has made it even better!   Each year I am blown away by the effort of the whole show and I can’t even imagine how many man-hours went into building each garden. And bringing so many plants and flowers to absolute perfection is a highly skilled experience for the exhibitors. Plants and flowers are held back by refrigeration or bought into premature flowering using lamps and artificial day length and light. Therefore all flowers are full in bloom and they all look fantastic! I took a few snaps to share with you all!
