Chelsea Garden Show 2007

so, one of my Many Dreams revolves around a couple of weeks in London, the RHS's Chelsea Flower Show, unlimited cash and a friendly shipping firm to help me box up tons of plants and garden thingies and then send them wingin' across the Atlantic to Number 17...then a couple more weeks in Scotland...then a few more in The Lake District (which is, cross my heart, the loveliest place I have ever seen, bar none)...and I really didn't see much of Ireland at all...or Wales...or the southeastern part of Britain...

Good...I mentioned "unlimited cash"...but I forgot "no back flare-ups"...but now that I mentioned it, I'm good :)

Here is a link to the Times' garden page and from it you can click through many of the displays at the Chelsea...

Oh, how delightful! Count me in on your wonderful plan. I've often read about how wonderful the Chelsea Garden Show is. It might be rather difficult to drag plants back over the Atlantic though...

Thanks for the link. I didn't think the mars one was so bad!

Hi Mrs.G, welcome to the world of hooking!...when I first started my very first project I finished half of it, left it alone for about 2 years...then finally finished it. I did'nt take to it right away. At the time my heart was into quilting. When I finally finished that piece, I was hooked!...and realized that the craft was a slow process, I think at the time hooking provided good therapy for me, I hav'nt stopped since!...enjoy and dont get discouraged. Toni

it's all about the journey...
