Chelsea Centenary Flower Show
Hospital where the Chelsea pensioners live, women queued to get their photo taken with him!
Just some of my impressions of Chelsea, we certainly enjoyed our day but to be honest £55.00 is a bit steep for a day spent walking around what is after all a flower show.I am glad I went especially for the centenary year but I don't think I will be in a hurry to go again.
This weekend we are off once again to our own Bloom Show in Phoenix Park in Dublin, this will be our 6th year going. We look forward to it each year as it gets not just bigger but better and more in tune with the punters who pay to go in.
The difference is Bloom is run by Bord Bia our Food Board and vegetables rank as high if not higher than the flower displays. There is a huge Marquee taken over with Cookery demos by our celebrity chefs. There is a Gardeners Q&A session with various gardening gurus and quite a lot of craft and sustainable ideas to browse through plus the Artisan food marquees to sample the fine fare on offer!
