The sad end to Chelsea

The Show is over for another year and the plans are already starting for next year. But the pictures below show you a Chelsea you never see. Only a few days ago, these gardens were Gold medal winning gardens. Now they are a building site.

Robert Herrick was right when he wrote:

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,

Old times are still a-flying:

And this same flower that smiles today

Tomorrow will be dying.

And on that uncharacteristacilly philosophical note, I will bid you farewell for another year. Let’s see what 2014 brings.
