I also managed to squeeze in a couple of hours at the Chelsea Flower Show the evening before. When I lived in Chelsea I was a regular, but I haven't been there for a while. Fun again to catch up. I took pictures, intending them to be for myself - a few memories and ideas for my own garden. (Dream big!!!!) When I ran through them I realised that several of the gardens and displays I had chosen to photograph seemed to tell a story, be an inspirational setting or be connected to some point in history, so I thought I would share a few of them after all.
|I loved this one for the cool quality of the stone and the white and green planting.
|This was an evocation of a garden in the South of France. Perfect setting for a book?
|This was France again - the retelling of a story of an airman shot down in WWII
|One for the history buffs - celebrating Magna Carta
|Another historical theme - this time Waterloo
