Chelsea Flower Show Week

This is the first time since WW 2 that the Royal Horticultural Society cancelled the notable RHS Chelsea Flower Show. As with many of the world’s Covid cancellations, a splendid virtual show took shape.  Lots of photos, garden lectures, featured exhibits from past shows, and more continued the inspiration and education that is Chelsea.  I tuned into some of the offerings and went through my photos from past years of our RHS Chelsea and English Garden tours remembering each trip and the women who joined me.  I think especially of some of the mothers and daughters who have experienced our English Garden trips. We have travelers who love everything gardening and women who don’t know much about gardens but like flowers and everything English.  This trip is indeed all about everything English from pubs to tea, country manor houses and castles, hedgerows , cottages, and pastoral landscapes.  I am home now with the fragrance of lilacs filling the air and planning on traveling again to merry England in May 2021 for The 2021 Chelsea Flower Show and our tour of English gardens.
