Birthday Treat

What do you buy the man who needs nothing ?? Well this was the dilemma my brothers & I faced as our Dad turned 70 last month.So after a lot of head scratching we came up with a day at Chelsea Flower Show for both Dad & Mum, Paul & I tagged along to provide company & transport :)
We all had a marvellous day & here are some of the highlights...
 Gnomes allowed for the first time ever :)
 Finding our way around
 Mum & Dad

 The Australian garden
 more show gardens

 Inside the Pavilion
 stunning displays
my favourite with the wall panels made of appliqued leather.
 gardener spotting!
The weather stayed dry albeit a little cold but we managed to see everything we wanted to see & came home with our heads buzzing with ideas & flower names for our back garden which really needs our attention this year.
Would I go again...oh yes :)
