Flowers Everywhere

I went to the Chelsea Flower Show yesterday, and it was, as usual, a truly amazing experience. I've posted some of the show gardens I saw there, and as you can see there was even a flower-decked bus on the road outside.














This garden was called "From Life to Life, A garden for George" and was dedicated to George Harrison. It was so lovely.....



Inside the covered area there were displays of different types of flowers, and one central display was a huge circular walkway made entirely of roses, so I got lots of shots. I've put a selection of them in a blog I've called Roses, which you can find by going to my profile and clicking on it (or you can click here ).

You Brits have a rep for growing great gardens, so I'll bet this was a great show. It seems that I've heard of this one before. Is it really huge?

Thank you for posting this piccies, I miss getting to see Chelsea. I see minimalism was a factor this year and flowing lines - stunning. The 'George' garden is beautiful and what a wonderful tribute.
