Good evening all!
Back from the Big Smoke. Wow! I was brought up in Hertfordshire and used to know how London fitted together, so to speak, but it doesn't look the same 40 years since my last visit... But Chelsea was fab; freezing cold (I saw an American visitor buying gardening gloves to wear going round the show) but so worth visiting. I've come back with loads of ideas and inspirations. Photos too - I'll post some when I find the appropriate thread. Like Chicky I was impressed by the planting in the LG garden (but not the design particularly). I liked Andy Sturgeon's better than I'd expected; the colour palette was very subdued - greens and rusty orange, principally - but I found that restful, and I felt the design worked, though it was a bit spiky for my taste. I'd find it hard to pick a favourite. Many had bits I liked and others I didn't so much.
Managed to fit in a visit to the British Museum on Tuesday...
...and the National Gallery this morning...

Off to look for the Chelsea photo thread!
