A Flowering Sloane Square for Chelsea Flower Show


Ooh la la....is the first thing I said when I popped out 
of the Sloane Square tube station this morning. 
I hit the streets bright and early to make the most of my day and quickly 
came upon these beautiful window displays.







This beauty is part of the Sloane in Bloom festivities
 in support of the Chelsea Flower Show.
I think the images speak for themselves but what I was really 
taken with was the lovely hats on display at



Whew...and this was all before I stepped into the Flower Show.....


and it was wonderful!!!!

But....I will have to save that for later :)
I have enough photos to make it last all summer long.
In the meantime, I have to run.

Mr. H is giving me 'the look'.
I need to pack.
We are off to Quebec City tomorrow 
to celebrate the birthday of a very special lady,
Mere Claire.
I am going to say adieu
and send you floral wishes for a wonderful weekend!!

  11. I actually said "Ahhhhh" when I saw that Jo Malone image and my jaw continued to hang as I scrolled down to French Sole (oh how I wish)and then the hats! the flowers! the colour! You've done it again Jeanne. Thanks for colouring my morning. I've just returned from the hospital with Bugsy, put him into bed and treated myself to some bloggy time. I'm so glad I did.....I'm sure cleaning up my house won't be so defeating with those images circulating in my head as I scrub. Hope you have a lovely time catching up with friends. Meredy xo.

  15. Hi Jeanne - how gorgeous - I loved the way that the shops around the Chelsea Flower Show all join in each year with their own special displays - I think that they have their own special competition too and a winner is announced. So glad you had a good day and enjoy your trip away to Quebec city - lucky girl! x
