50 at the Chelsea Flower Show

On Friday the 25th of May I turned 50 or as my beloved sister said I'm half a century and what fun I've had getting here. My surprise birthday present was a trip to London and tickets to the Chelsea Flower show. They have been planning this since January. The first I heard about it was the Sunday night after I had watched the first programme of coverage of the show. I was thrilled.

THE GREAT PAVALLION















THE FLOWER ARRAGEMENTS.















These are just a few of the 373 photos I took on the day.

  1. Great photos. Did you go into Diarmud's garden? I would have liked to myself but the queue was too long!
