Today was the Chelsea flower show. Mum was in heaven, except for the whole, can’t buy any seeds thing. I told her I would hand her over to border security if she tried to slip them through customs.


Mum’s favorite stall at the Chelsea Flower Show

She also liked a few things that would’t fit in the overhead luggage bin on the flight home. OMG there was a lot of people there, so we had to be patient to get a look at the gardens. They were pretty impressive especially when you consider the work that must be involved in setting them up.

In addition to the garden displays there were numerous stalls of people selling everything you could imagine. There were gardening implement, bedding, art, clothing,  stuff. Lots of stuff.

Inside the main pavilion there must have been over a hundred different flower displays. It was too much to absorb.

We spent most of the day there, though there was just enough time for a short foray to the bookshop I spotted yesterday.

Then back to the apartment for an early night. This being a tourist is exhausting.

    Ooh, boots. Mum will be proud. They even had boots at the Chelsea flower show, but wading around in he muck sort, rather than dress boots. Probably not anything like your new ones.
