I'll put these photo's up in two lots - I took over 100 photo's, So, to start here are the outside gardens, but the first two are from the the Kings Road for Chelsea in Bloom week. I can't remember the names of all the gardens, but will add them as and when I do.
|Dairmud Gavin's garden - we did not like the moving hedges and window boxes very much. but the cottagey planting was lovely.|
|I rather like this unusual garden seat - I think it was on one of the trade stands.|
|Matthew Wilson's Garden - the stained glass and sideways window depicts York Minster. This was one of my favourite gardens. Also the public's as it won the Public Vote for Best Garden.|
|This reminded me of the children's story of Strewwelpeter|
|The Telegraph Garden - designed by Andy Sturgeon - Gold Medal and Best in Show. Andy can be seen - just - standing 4th from right.|
|Another view of the Telegraph Garden - a lot of people did not like this garden, but I rather did. It was a garden I would enjoy being in and working in.|
After a welcome and warming cup of tea and a piece of cake Marie and I popped in to look at the floral decorations. I am not sure, but I don't remember seeing these on the BBC's coverage of Chelsea. I might have missed some of it though.
|Not sure I would like one of these huge faces in my garden|
We were fascinated by these sculptures made with what looked like drift wood.
|Isn't this peeing dog fun?|
|This was the garden designed to depict slavery - in the past, and now.|
|Not sure how one would mow the grass here.|

The following photo's show the knitted and crocheted poppies - quite a remarkable achievement, and very moving.
