Chelsea flower show

As someone with a repertoire of around 10 plant names- I can tell a rose from a daffodil (drum roll!) – I was enthralled by my first visit to the Chelsea Flower Show. It was so difficult to choose a selection of the delights of this year's show for the blog but I do hope my plant loving followers enjoy and I'd love to hear what you like best.

The forts shot of the overall show winner- it is so beautiful, don't you think?

This display of strawberries was a show stopper! All evenly sized, dropping off even delicate stems- wow!

Even the walls around Sloane square are festooned with plants

The sound guy takes time out with a cone!


Happy floral Monday !

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
