It’s raining flowers

It was a warm summer evening and we went walking around Chelsea along with Crumpet to look at some of the other floral displays. There was an event at Wild at Heart – which supports a dog charity so lots of doggies out and about too. One of our favourite places It is always pretty in pink at Peggy Porschen’s cake shopAnd even eye glasses became a part of a floral display!And this one is a flame of flowers – we think! Others more ethereal looking.

Closer to home,The Ivy Chelsea Garden never disappoints whatever the occasion.

There were floral arrangement in bird cages At Beaufort House.

Along the streets, there were flower baskets hanging from lamp posts At Maze Grill, it was more woody than floral.And I was more interested in going inside.

Far away from the hub of activity at Sloane Square we found a giraffe near us.It’s at Ritorno restaurant – they’re not pet-friendly so we have never been there.

Sometimes the floral decorations are stickers on shop windows Hmmm, this is different. And then this one gets the prize for trying!LOL!

But our favourite Yay! Monster from “Where the Wild Things are” at Wild at Heart – for many reasons. One of it being they support a dog’s charity.

And to end the day, we went for ice-cream at Amorino Gelato  And even their gelato is served like a rose – a cone of petals!

May’s comment: I was at the Chelsea Flower Show three years ago – I just remember it was a very warm day and it was so jam-packed with people, I only managed glimpses of the gardens on display. Have not dared to venture back there again – but we love Chelsea in Bloom which is always held in conjunction with the Chelsea Flower Show. There’s also Belgravia in Bloom but I don’t think that has caught on quite yet.

The show ends tomorrow … till next year.

Thank you Alex, Vicky and Crumpet for a lovely walk.

    I Love the flowers…. but Miss Darcy I think it is not the Gruffalo at Wild at Heart – it is one of the Monsters from Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are….. x
