The joys of traveling in England anytime are numerous. In May, traveling amidst spring with gardens in bloom is beautiful. The Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show is always in May and is a focal point in London for the start of our annual English Garden tour. The Chelsea Flower show is indeed The Grande Dame of flower shows internationally. Attendance is capped and RHS members have the distinct privilege to attend on member’s opening day. Tickets for the event are ordered months ahead and excitement builds throughout the spring as news is shared of the participants and the garden designs. The blooms are in pristine condition and the world class designs always inspire. I especially like the artisan gardens which are smaller. I can imagine some of the elements in my own garden. Whether a keen gardener or not, England in May is pure delight and we invite you to join our small group tour for women.
