I’m rewinding back to May for this post. (I’m no longer fussed about chronology on this increasingly sporadic blog of mine. As I say to my kids, you get what you get and you don’t get upset.)
To go along with the annual Chelsea Flower Show, the King’s Road and its cross streets, along with Sloane Square and Duke of York Square, get a floral makeover for a week, called ‘Chelsea in Bloom.’
Floral designers deck out the exteriors of the shops and restaurants with thousands of real flowers. It’s a judged competition, though I have no idea what the prizes are.
Unlike the Chelsea Flower Show, it’s free to walk around and marvel at the displays.
This year’s theme was “Under the Sea,” and the displays were supremely, marinely magnificent.
