Seriously I did! Live on webcam 2 – Pitty I’m not a royalist! The webcam images are a little like watching ghostly figures in slow motion animation – mesmerising and broadband super draining, as it’s an image that seems to be refreshed every second or two.
“…..The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is the ultimate event in the gardening year. It sets the latest gardening trends, features the newest and most desirable gardening products and creates an explosion of colours and scents……”

Spot the queen!

This is the Wimbledon, of flower and garden shows – the crème de la crème, de la crème del la crème, del la crème!
The show opens tomorrow [20th – 24th May] – they used to show it on BBC Prime but alas no more. The flowers and garden designs were spectacular so I’m a tad miffed that I can’t get to see it this year – has to be budget cuts

It has a very dull and visually disappointing website – very few pictures of flowers but packed with info on gardening stuff. And 2 live Webcams – placed way up high on a pole [so they wont get nicked! (stolen)] you can’t really see any thing interesting except for the crowds shuffling about – spell binding!

If you’re in London you must go!
