London in Bloom

Mom's Back!
With bags of seeds, catalogs, presents for DAD and DOGS and over one thousand pictures.

The Earthbound Expedition Group.

"Christmas Tree Grandma" hams it up for the camera .

The winning garden display at the 2014 Chelsea Flower Show.

The crowds gather early to take it all in.

The colors! 
Why have we ignored Lupines for OUR garden? Making notes to plant Lupines, right away!

And more Hyacinths too!

Orange and Purple do work together!

Oh, the romance.....

Winning designs, fantastic color combinations and inspiration to spare.

Definitely need to plant Lupines!


OH, the ROSES!
Here's just a sampling of the available sculpture at the Chelsea Flower Show.
The horses had all been sold....oh well, they couldn't fit in our luggage anyway.
 

The pretty edibles.

Stay tuned for shopping, eating, garden tours 
and meeting up with fellow blogger Sarah and her dog Leo!

  10. Oh my, my mom awwed and oooed the whole time. If I marry a girl she should wear exactly that dress, it's a masterpiece. How sad that you couldn't put the wonderful sculptures in your luggage, they are eyecatchers for every garden. I hope your ma and your granny had a fabulous time visiting "the ole world".

  15. You travelled all that way :-) and I look at your photo's of the flower show :-)
    Although I think one guy from Devon had a first, he wasn't very old, 24/25 something like that.
    Thanks mom for such beautiful photo's. Nah, your all right about the taxi and the red telephone box ha, ha, but the others are great.....Silly coach driver, I thought every one knew where we lived.
    Luv's to Wyatt from Freya Rose Blossom and her mum... x x x
