Chelsea Spring Flower Show

The Royal Horticultural Society puts on the Chelsea Flower Show, every May for 5 days.  It is held on the Royal Hospital Grounds in Chelsea, London.  The most famous Flower Show in the UK and most likely the world, the show attracts visitors from all continents.  Here are some of our favorite pictures from previous shows-
