Weekly photo challenge: Foreign

LONDON - I went to the Chelsea flower show earlier this year and it attracts exhibitors from all over the world. I was amazed at these plants that I saw on display. They definitely looked foreign to me.

Foreign looking, don’t you agree?

Taking in all the delights of the Chelsea Flower Show

LONDON - A few weeks ago, I headed to the Chelsea Flower show. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do (Bucket list). It’s a legendary flower show that attracts entrants from around the world and has become a must-do event for many royals and celebs. I had to go. No, not to see them (although I was looking), but to keep up with the posh set.

I headed on the Friday and almost immediately was confronted with massive crowds. I had no idea it would be that busy. I imagined we would all be gently walking around the grounds at a leisurely pace, pointing at a standout display, and commenting to a friend while we sipped champagne. Not so. This was serious crowd dramatics. The people, mostly seniors who read the Daily Telegraph, were packed in thick but we had one purpose – see it all in a handful of hours. Well, I tried, but was unsuccessful. I saw a lot, but missed a fair amount too. Still, it was impressive and you must go too.

This post and a few that will follow are all about the photos of the exhibits. So, take a look. The displays were amazing. I’m heading back next year.
