Now my article in the new Schweizer Garten is published. So there is no reason to keep the photos from the Chelsea Flower Show 2015 back anymore. I've made so many pictures, that I structured them in three parts. Let's start with the gardens. I hope, you enjoy yourself.
Foxglove. I just love it and I will plant more of it in my garden.
We were very early in the morning at the Chelsea. Short after opening we already walked through those gorgeous gardens. So we could enjoy them without much crowd.
I can't tell you anymore who has designed which garden and who won an award. However, if you are interested in this, you find the answers here.
This was our favorite garden of them all: The Beauty of Islam. Just look what peace and calm this garden radiats.
Just white, grey and green... no more is needed.
We would have loved to sit down on those cushions and just relax. Well, okay, my hubby was dreaming of a hookah as well.
I loved this combination of plants.
Recycling mal anders.
Recycling with a difference.
Im World Vision Garden fand ich die Spiegelungen genial.
I loved the World Vision water garden for its mirror effects.
Und wieder diese atemberaubenden Farben.
And again breathtaking color mixtures.Auch dieser Garten ist uns gut in Erinnerung geblieben: A Perfumer’s Garden in Grasse by L’Occitane
Ein Tag zuvor hatten wir einen Bericht über diesen Garten auf BBC gesehen. Da wurde erzählt, wie der Garten in der Provence gewachsen ist, dann sorgfältig ausgegraben, nach England geflogen und da wieder eingepflanzt wurde. Wir waren einfach nur platt. Wir würden aber dem Designer empfehlen beim nächsten Mal auch noch die Grillen einfliegen zu lassen, denn die haben noch gefehlt *grins*.
Another garden that we will never forget: A Perfumer’s Garden in Grasse by L’Occitane. Just a day before we went at the Chelsea we saw in TV how this garden was created and nursed in the Provence, was digged out, flown to London and then planted again. How crazy is that... no effort too much for the Chelsea. However, something was missing in this garden nevertheless: the sound of the crickets *smile*.
Very artistically... but are those garden seats comfortable as well? We will never know.
Behind this garden is a touching story: The father of the garden designer was an RAF evader and shot down in world war two in France. Some brave citizen saved him and his mates their lives. The garden shows the special band between those helpers and the evaders.
I would have loved to lay down on this leaf of willow... but I guess the designer wouldn't have been amused.
Who wouldn't have loved to have here a picnic?
I bet the men would prefer a break at the brewers yard *smile*.
Buechkafi. Da ist nämlich seit gestern Anne Wiegner zu Gast mit ihrem Roman "Ich wollte immer nur Dich". Auch eine Leseprobe ist aufgeschalten. Schaut mal rein.
And this was the last garden of the Chelsea Flower Show. Next time I'll take you with me into the big tent, where the plant breeders were located.
Habt alle ein gemütliches und herrlich erfrischendes Wochenende (endlich kann man auch hier mal wieder durchatmen).
Have all a joyful and refreshing weekend... finally the hot temperatures are gone... uff, I'm glad about it.
