Chelsea in Bloom
Chelsea in Bloom
Oh, it is officially my favorite time of year in London. It's that time when we all start hoping that there's a summer ahead. The newspapers start writing stories with headlines like "hottest summer ever ahead," and "it's going to be a scorcher." And we all pray for such an outcome, only to either end up complaining about it being a total rain out or complaining it's so hot that we're all wishing air conditioning was in every home in London. Hey, we have a thing about talking about the weather. It's cultural. But, there's something else that comes this time of year... flowers... so many flowers... and they pop up first in Chelsea for the Chelsea Flower Show. Only, the good people of London like to share in the festivities and, in Chelsea, there's an actual competition upon retailers when it comes to translating the trend. The result is true flower power in the form of Chelsea in Bloom and it looks a little something like this ----
