This past weekend brought the closing days of the 2014 Chelsea Flower Show.
Ladies love an opportunity to throw on a flowery frock, get gussied up, and spend an afternoon gasping at astonishing feats of gardening.
So why not pop by to experience all the hullabaloo!
It was so much fun wandering around through the stalls and vendor exhibits taking in all the cutesy fashions and accessories that people who garden would love!
After a walk around the grounds getting smooshed and bumped in the massive throng of crowds, it was time for a relaxed afternoon tea in the pavilion.
We had the best seats in the house – out on the sunny balcony of the pavilion, where we could nibble cakes and scones, watching the eager crowds below.
After tea, we had a chance to chat with some of the Chelsea Pensioners who were on hand for the bell-ringing ceremony to close the show.
These retired servicemen and women live in barracks on the grounds of the Royal Hospital and are recognizable by their distinctive scarlet coats. They are a jolly bunch, and always add a distinguished air to ceremonial events.
A truly lovely time was had by all.
Hats off to the Chelsea Flower Show for putting on another incredible event!
