Dear readers, this week, C is for the Chelsea Flower Show, May 2014                                              

Even if, like me, you prefer admiring the efforts of others doing the gardening, there’s always something to catch your eye at Chelsea. Here are a few shots from the recent show:

Cactus display:

                          And some of the model gardens:

And, finally, thank you to all our dear readers who visited, commented or are new followers.

A gorgeous garden! Always so lovely to visit you here. Those lupins made me smile. But I adore flowers. I am not a fan of Xeriscaping! My late Aunt Ang use to say "If I wanted cactus and tumbleweeds, I would move to Arizona!" She had an exquisite rose garden. I wish I knew the secret to her gorgeous roses. Sigh! Enjoy a beautiful week. Hugs, Anne
