My fabulous jet-set stepsister, Erica, just returned from London where she attended the hottest event in England, second only to the royal wedding–the 2018 Chelsea Flower Show. Since this annual Royal Horticulture Society event has long been on my bucket list, my sister graciously agreed to share her photographic impressions of her trip with me and my readers.
Now, my girl is not about to spend several days in London without doing a little (or a lot of) shopping. However, she still was able to get her floral fix while pursuing a little retail therapy. In fact, she engaged in some awesome flower-power-shopping because the Sloan Square shops in Chelsea get into the spirit of the famous flower show with their own alternative floral art competition called Chelsea In Bloom. The theme of this year’s Chelsea In Bloom was inspired by the Royal Wedding and the 1960’s “Summer Of Love.” More than 60 retailers, restaurants, and hotels joined the competition to adorn their shopfronts with the most spectacular floral display.
So, put on your sandals and love beads and walk through the “Tunnel Of Love” into the wonderland of Chelsea In Bloom.
To see more of the entries and the winners, check out the official site for Chelsea in Bloom, Summer Of Love. And see Erica’s photos from the 2018 Chelsea Flower Show in an upcoming post.
