Take a look at Chelsea Flower Show, September 2021!
Finally, it's time to travel! I'll be leaving in a few days: first for London (think Chelsea Flower Show) and then to Manchester to stay with daughter and her husband. Yes, it's very exciting!
The RHS Chelsea Flower Show!!!
Someday, maybe, I will get there. In the meantime I read all about it on all social media, and now can watch it streaming live. If you have Britbox you can access it there. Or, just go to YouTube.
Here is Episode 1 which was broadcast on Monday afternoon.
Each of these episodes is about an hour. They will give you great commentary (including Monty Don) and a really thorough tour of the gardens.
Then there is Alexandra’s blog, The Middle Sized Garden, and her latest post:
Small Garden Design Inspiration from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show
Alexandra does a really nice job here of highlighting the many new themes and ideas at the show this year. Definitely worth watching and listening:
So much of London is decked out this week with beautiful flowers! By the time I get there next week I think most of the squares will be emptied of these fabulous floral stage sets… but I can hope!
I will be here from time to time in the next few weeks as we travel to various parts of the UK. The weather looks fine and let’s hope it holds!
