London Hot-Spot: Loving tulips...at the beautiful Chelsea Flower Show 2014!

It was really an event for flower and creative lovers alike....almost like spinning pieces of art through living flowers, and in a concrete jungle world it is a breath of beautiful fresh air literally recycling up our CO2. Tea and cake happened to be higher in price than most, which would be ok had the quality been better, nevertheless it was about the flowers rather than the food. I never knew there were so many varieties of tulips and peonies, then the colourful rainbow of hyacinths made me smile and even the orchids made me think of my lovely grandmother. Interesting how flowers were capable of evoking so much emotion, perhaps this is why I have so many floral printed dresses and skirts in my wardrobe. Packed with a sea of people it was at times hard to see certain displays and we needed to dodge the several photo spot hoggers, but it was definitely a worthwhile afternoon of creativity and inspiration. A show I would be happy to return to next year!
