Pinks And Whites On Chelsea Eve
I have also spotted that one of my original Iris has flower buds on it.It has been growing for three seasons now and i have never seen it flower.The two Iris i bought were called Indian Chief, and Black Knight.I do not know which the Iris is.I hope it flowers soon so i can share it on the blog.The Peony also has flower buds and ants.Again it is three years old and has never bloomed.It seems to be a vintage year for some of the plants that I originally bought when we moved here.Gardening with patience..
I watched the BBC's pre RHS Chelsea flower show coverage tonight.It looks amazing. A sumptuous chocolate box of plants, flowers, gardens,gnomes, and celebrities.Tomorrow is the press day, then Tuesday is RHS medals day.The BBC will have some of my favourite presenters like Andy Sturgeon, Christine Walkden, Tom Hart Dyke, Toby Buckland, and Carol Klein (who has grown on me over the last few episodes of Gardeners World. She loves her plants and is very knowledgeable).
I will have to watch it on the BBC (or BBC I player) as I do not have tickets.One year I will go to see the show for myself.
I love the Chris Beardshaw garden, and have high hopes for the Sentebale garden of Prince Harry.The Gnomes have already invaded, as i have seen pictures of them on twitter.For one show only.You know spring is here when the Chelsea flower show starts.
