Floristry Piccies...


I’m feeling very glum this afternoon – I think it’s the weather today. It’s such a cold and wet Sunday afternoon in the garden of England… I’m well behind posting any of my pictures taken at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show last month, so I thought I’d cheer myself up and relive a small part of the day! ;o)

As you probably are all aware I’m into the floristry side of the show… Thought you’d like to see a few of my piccies that I took of the exhibits.

Anyone for Tea? Just love the china Tea Pot and Cup…;o)

Who would like a Jammy Dodger or two…???! ;o)

Or what about a Cupcake…? :o)

Thanks for taking the time to have a look at these pic’s –
After seeing all those Jammy Dodgers I think I’ll stop here, and make myself a decent mug of filter coffee and have a choccie biscuit or two or three or four…! ;o)

I assume the tea pot is filled with green tea?

Possibly Arbuthnot...!;o) However, I hate tea - I'm more of a coffee lady!!! :D

You really piqued my interest with the jammy dodgers. I must explore.

Those cup cakes are wonderful!

In fact the whole exhibit is gorgeous and so cleverly done.

I hope tomorrow is a nicer day where you are, good enough to lift your spirits! :-)

Thank you everyone. This was a wonderful exhibit - I'm not sure if it received coverage on the TV programme, but I really enjoyed it... ;o)
The sun has had his hat off here, this afternoon and I'm feeling much brighter...! lol :o)

Paul - The original Jammy Dodgers are a circular biscuit with red jam spread over the base, then sandwiched together with a biscuit top that has a small hole for you to see the jam! The type illustrated has a vanilla cream filling with a blob of thick strawberry or raspberry jam in the middle, before being sandwiched with the biscuit top... This type was always one of my favourites as a child... :o) Although I think the floral version is brilliant, on the whole I think the edible version are far more preferable! ;o)

Well Tracey.....I think tea is in order after looking at your great photos........and perhaps a choccie biscuit.

Sounds delightful Tracey

Glad you enjoyed these pictures - I took so many of the gardens but just didn't know where to start... The TV programme can go on a bit... but it does tend to miss some really interesting exhibits! I like watching the programme to see what I've missed - But unfortunately, it doesn't work like that does it?!

Just returned from late in replying.....loved the photos,Tracey......didn't see this exhibit on the TV coverage.:0))

20 Jun, 2015

22 Jun, 2015

23 Jun, 2015


Oh dear me! I've had plenty of cottage holidays like that! ;o)
