Click on photos to enlarge...these are Russell Lupines
So drawn to the high impact color specimen displays, I must have taken hundreds of photos. Do you fancy seeing a few from 2005? Not many...I don't want to bore you but, it is nice to share don't you think and it is so cold and white outside.
The Great Pavilion is, as they say, "The Centerpiece" of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. World class plant specialists and growers absolutely amaze the many thousands of visiting public with their skill and knowledge.
However do they make these bouquets stand out, so full, lush and beautiful, dripping in blooms, virtual mountains of beauty. These are Aquilegia ..Columbine..."granny bonnets".....one of my favourite flowers.
But, my all time favourite flower....sweet peas...so beautiful and almost always, delightfully fragrant. Just look at these bouquets.
If you can't get to Chelsea, rest assured Nova Scotia communities have wonderful and sometimes competitive displays as well. Entering specimens or arrangements is quite thrilling and satisfying...just plain fun even without the competition side of it and there's always tea you know)))). Folks can join clubs all through the province and you only need to look here to find a garden club near you.
