More Chelsea 2024- The Great Pavilion and Retail

The Great Pavilion is a large indoor exhibition space with featured plants, small garden displays and more. We took cover in the Pavilion when the heavier rain started. So, did many other people. I confess that we didn't stay long as it became too crowded.

We took a few photos where we could. Unfortunately, we missed some of the highlights so definitely check out this link to be amazed:

A sea of fuchsias

Orchids around the world in a simulated environment

Huge Delphiniums!

Plant competitions

I don't know why its a photo instead of a plant. Perhaps, it is too early too feature this cosmos in real life. Mine bloom in late summer.

More dragons!

This was a lovely garden display that you could walk through.

They even coordinated the chair!

An over the top rose display. :)

After about forty five minutes, I was starting to feel claustrophobic and we exited. I'm sure that the rain contributed to everyone entering at the same time. I should have tried out one of these places as a respite , but we knew we were headed to the Newt's hospitality area soon. Isn't this pleasant? I love the soft green chairs. I think this area featured Babylonstoren Mourvèdre Rosé.

The following photos are a variety of retailer displays that I found quite appealing. They were a big part of the experience.

Elegant dining in the garden

This would be a nice set up at home. Oh My!

Dining al fresco in style This is actually more to my taste.

Great idea to add fairy lights! Just magical.

Upscaling your green house

Elevated patios!

A summer house interior

A Black Bird Sang- They had charming garden accessories and stationery that were within reach of my budget. There were many retailers with affordable items, but I particularly liked this one.

You could even find clothing.

Add the illusion of space and more light to your garden with mirrors.

I even found a fairy. I didn't buy her. Likely she is a very expensive bronze.

So, here's a picture of a tired, but happy gardener at the show. I did not hold back on the chance to dress in florals! I even have my green April Cornell tote bag.

Next up, Chelsea in Bloom! This event is held in parallel to the Chelsea Flower Show. It was a wonderful experience.

What a beautiful gardener to wrap up this presentation - wonder why she choose pink for her shawl?

You know I love pinks! It was like I had planned it with the roses. :)
