A week of flowers: Chelsea Flower Show

With more magnificent blooms from Chelsea Flower Show on Saturday, this could quite easily become "two weeks of flowers" …


I really loved this old-fashioned display of daffodils – apparently the guy has been attending the show for thirty-odd years and has as many awards under his belt. I was also amazed by the sheer variety of daffodils.




Heavenly scents (and the most perfect, old-fashioned English roses) from the David Austin stand…





and James May's plasticine garden (with plasticine ladybirds and clever cauliflowers) …

    I know the plasticine is not technically allowed but I love it. I think you have to let a few non-kosher things in, makes everyone more enthusiastic.

    Oh how beautiful! It makes me miss my David Austin roses. The evil Japanese beetles killed the over the last 3 years.

    The photos of that daff display really do look like they were taken in the 1950s! I guess if the formula has worked for him for more than 30 years, there’s no reason to change it!

    These are too beautiful. I am reminded of P.T. Anderson’s Magnolia, not because of the name, but for the feeling I’m having from watching such stuff of floral prettiness. Those english roses almost made me cry.
