Black & white photos: Chelsea Flower Show

On Friday evening we visited the Chelsea Flower Show, we'd been before but not for a few years so after watching it enviously on the television last year I was determined to get tickets this year. It lived up to my expectations, but there was just so much to see and I don't think anyone could do it justice in the two and a half hours we had.

It was much busier than I remembered too, and while we saw the show gardens and walked endlessly round the main pavilion we only got to see some of the artisan gardens as the crowds there were just too large. So note to self, next time get a day ticket!

There's so much to see and experience and you'll not be surprised to learn that I took lots of photos, many of which I'm sure I'll share here in the next few weeks or so. But today I thought I'd share some as a teaser in black and white.
