The Chelsea Flower show is world famous and incredibly popular, so for those of us who can’t visit, an event called Chelsea in Bloom is a nice aternative. Shops in the Chelsea area take part in celebrating the flower show by decoratating their shop fronts in beautiful flowers. They compete with one another to create the best displays. Can you guess this year’s theme?
My sister and I went along one day to take a look. There were 88 displays in all but I don’t think we managed to see all of them. Some were really impressive, some were quite fun and others pointing to a more serious aspect of pollution.
I really liked the ‘pretty’ fish made of leaves and flowers.
Some displays were huge covering the height of the building while others had more detail to them.
My favourites displays were the purple shark, the oyster shell surrounded by colourful flowers, and the googly eyed octopus.
We spent a few hours walking around looking at the displays before we decided it was getting late and headed for home (not to mention we were exhausted). I thought some of the displays were really creative and colourful and I enjoyed seeing them. If you’re interested in seeing who the winners of the competition were click here.
You’ve been to Chelsea in Bloom before, right? I seem to remember an earlier post. What fun!
Yes, I went to the Chelsea in Bloom event last year, well remembered. There were some cool displays then too – here’s the link in case you want another look https://everyphototunity.com/2018/06/24/chelsea-in-bloom-2018/
