Hello Forkers - May Edition

Posted: 25/05/2017 at 16:33

I'm home   Went straight from Chelsea to a work conference - will be glad to sleep in my own bed tonight

Had a fabulous day out at Chelsea.  Bought primulas from Hosta's lovely friends(and had a nice chat too).  CBs garden was my favourite, along with the poets one and the japanese one with the amazing waterfall.  Maltese quarry left us all cold - noticeable that very few people crowding round to look at it πŸ‘€ 

Floral marquee was brilliant, and lots of laughs had with my sisters .....its the most amazing place to people watch and eavesdrop ....although not really eavesdropping once the braying types get going
