Chelsea Flower Show Confessions..London

I have been thinking about the best way to share my favourite photos 
 I feel I should be a good blogger and give you a long explanation 
about each garden but I have to confess that I am not very good at that. 
It is not my 'shtick' as they say. 

There are far more talented bloggers that have the gift for presenting details 
and creating a wonderful story around it. I regret that I have mastered the fine 
art of procrastination when it comes to projects like that. 

I like pictures, it is as simple as that.
For me, they say it all.

I will say that Andy Sturgeon's  award winning Best Show Garden 
for The Daily Telegraph had wonderful qualities.
For me, it was nostalgic of gardens I would see in Australia.
It all came together beautifully.

and then there was this lovely lavender hue garden by L'Occitane

It is going to be a week of flowers and travels....
stay tuned :)

  1. Hello big sis - haven't seen you round much, you must have been galavanting around flower shows! Wonderful pictures in this post, I am sure you had a great time. I must go one day, but then I say that about everything: Wimbledon, Ascot, Chelsea etc etc. Have a nice bank holiday, Lou x

  2. oh i love these images! never tire of a good garden, which is just as well considering my job!! hehe

    hope you had a lovely weekend, julesx

  3. Really beautiful! I love the clean lines and natural arrangement of the plants. The quote on the wall about the bees is very interesting.

  4. So wish I was there. Have a great week.

  5. Loveliness, sheer beauty...gardens at Chelsea...I can imagine how wonderful it would have been to see it all...I am in garden envy here!

  6. Oh, the L'Occitane garden is just a dream!

  7. Love all your images that tell the story beautifully! Enjoy all that prettiness!

  8. When you spoke of confessions I thought you were going to admit to pinching a few of the glorious peonies or roses from someone's display ;-) Very relieved to know it's nothing more than a confession of letting a picture speak a thousand words!
    Fabuleux stuff!

  9. Thanks so much for this post. I followed your link to the Chelsea show and just fell in love. Wonderful!

  10. Hi Jeanne. You did such a beautiful job of photographing the gardens...and your words aren't too shabby either! I'd love to be able to stroll through or sit and contemplate in any of those spaces.

  11. Just gorgeous - love the lavender garden especially... xx

  12. Beautiful Jeanne! When I go on garden tours, I always return home wanting to change, re-arrange, move things, add more to my few gardens... too bad those tours are just starting up for the summer. Would love to have you along for the coastal home and garden tours!!!

  13. Your photographs have captured the 'Best in Show' beautifully, Jeanne. Can't wait to see the rest of them.
    I'm sure that the L'Occitane garden smelt divine !
    Enjoy the rest of the's supposed to be warming up !! XXXX

  14. Beautiful! I can't wait to see the rest! I feel as though I have been flitting through, trying to catch up! I hope all's well with you!

  15. I will be daydreaming of that L'Occitane garden and stone cottage from now on.

  16. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous inspiration! Thank you for that!
