Four go to Chelsea

At last the day dawned for our excursion to the Chelsea Flower Show.  Although the weather was overcast, our mood was bright and sunny.  We decided to record our day through photographs and this helped us to focus.  By the time we reached Victoria Station the crowds were increasing and so was our excitement.   When we arrived at Sloane Square we were carried along to the show by the enthusiastic multitude.  

As we entered through the Exhibitors' Entrance we were thrilled to meet some Chelsea Pensioners in their full dress uniform.  We then investigated the map to plan our route through the show.  When we walked into the main pavillion, where we knew our garden was being exhibited, we were overwhelmed by the amazing smells and dazzling colours that greeted us.

At 3 o'clock we took our place in front of the 1970's Generation Garden, keen to share our learning journey with interested show-goers.  For 3 hours we talked to the public about the garden, our experiences reaching the show and the plants we grew for exhibiting.  The public interest was staggering, everyone was amazed to learn that school children were responsible for the plants in the garden and this was reflected in the complements written in the comments book.  

We were fortunate to meet famous gardeners Peter Seabrook and Christine Walkden, and were interviewed by the Miracle Gro team.

Finally we returned exhausted but exhilerated by our day.
