It’s the month of May and Chelsea is blooming – again!
Because it is Chelsea in Bloom!
This year, the theme is “Under the Sea.” And all around Chelsea are amazing floral creations by participating retailers’ inspired interpretation of the theme – while keeping it topical.
We wandered around Sloane Square, the Kings’s Road, Sloane Street … starting off at the Duke of York Square.
Behind the scene … LOL!
Across the street …
Moving over to Symons Street before heading over to Pavillion Road.
And Mum couldn’t resist …
Along Sloane Street …
And the only way we an add George in any photos into put him uphill so he doesn’t run away at every chance to seek attention.
Love these seahorses.
I really wanted a photo of me with them.
At the heart of Chelsea in Bloom – in Sloane Square were further displays …
Another photo …
The floral displays cover a wide area. You can pick up a guide at Sloane Square or have a guided tour – walking or on one of the Chelsea in Bloom rickshaws to see them all.
And then we met the Plastic Oceans UK – who in conjunction with this year’s theme, to educate and make hoomans aware of the pollution of plastics in our oceans.
Along King’s Road …
Last but not least – just off King’s road – meet Wally of Walpole Street!
This is Freddie’s daddy’s dental practice and they have a SHARK – which needed an implant.
And the Fab Four was out in force to lend our support!
May’s comment: And guess who won Gold?!??
This award was chosen by a panel of experts. But the voting continues for The People’s Champion Award. Let’s make Wally a hooman favourite! Click here to vote – http://www.chelseainbloom.co.uk/participants-voting
Chelsea in Bloom happens every year at the start of May. It is an extension of the iconic RHS Sponsored by Cadogan Estates, Sloane Street, Pavillion Road, Duke of York Square and King’s Road in association with the Royal Horticultural Society.
Each year there’s a theme. For Chelsea in Bloom 2019, the theme is all about saving our seas. So in conjunction with Plastic Oceans UK – this is an effort to change “attitudes and behaviours on the use and value of plastics, with the aim of stopping plastic pollution reaching the oceans within a generation.“
In case you’re wondering what happens to the flowers that are still alive at the end of the event – they will be recycled into beautiful new bouquets by the charity Floral Angels.
