I always struggle to write only one post about RHS Chelsea Flower Show. I think it shows the measure of how much I enjoy it and also just how much there is to see. Even this year where I think it is reasonable to say there is less in the Grand Pavilion and fewer gardens than there were some years ago; there is still a lot going on.

So how was it for me? Well it was an interesting show as it often is. I feel that Chelsea is trying to be more accessible and more aware of what is going on in the world. There seemed to be quite a few women designers taking part and more diversity generally; this is good and to be encouraged. I worry still that the cost of the tickets is excluding a lot of people; it is not a cheap day out and times are tough and getting tougher financially for many people. It is however a fun day. So as ever as one year of Chelsea ends I am already looking forward to what the next year will bring and hoping I will be able to visit.
