Postcard from Chelsea #1

This is a view of an area not accessible to flower show visitors and a reminder that it's hosted by the Royal Hospital Chelsea, home to the Chelsea Pensioners.

As you read this I'm on my way to Victoria's as I'm staying with her (with Patient Gardener) prior to my Chelsea visit tomorrow. Victoria will be fresh back from press day so we'll be getting all the showtime gossip prior to our visit to Rob's shop (aka The Garden Sage) tonight for drinks and nibbles :)


  1. I hope you have a wonderful time xx

  2. The Preview on BBC seemed better this year - less of Alan bouncing about and more on the plants - which should be the real stars of the show. Have a great time.

  3. Have fun! Hopefully it'll be a little cooler for you tomorrow.

  4. oh hark at you and your wonderful flower show life this year! Enjoy, Cheslea sounds fab - I will of course require many photos :)

  5. I don't want to go to Chelsea... Oh, wait. Yes, I do. I was just channeling Elvis Costello for no good reason. Looking forward to your report! :)

  6. RO - I did and I see you did too :)

    Hermes - they seemed to cover more design wise too. Much better on both scores :)

    Liz - thank you - the weather was perfect!

    Carrie - I think a rest from flower shows is needed for a while now. Next it's a holiday - yippee!

    Monica - the reports are in ;)
