• Tell Your Friends

I’m not a jealous person. I mean, come on — it’s a complete waste of your energy to long for something that someone else has. Right? OK, that’s how I usually feel. But then, my good friend Felicia over at HGTVGardens informed me that she’s headed to jolly old London, England next week for The Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show — and, I have to admit, I had a twinge of, “Uh, not fair — I wanna go!” I may have even stomped my foot (no, I really didn’t — OK, maybe I did). Of course, it makes no sense for me to go, but — that’s the thing about jealousy — it rarely ever makes sense.

What is the Chelsea Flower Show? Felicia writes, “What Bonnaroo is to indie rockers, the Oscars to movie stars, and the Venice Biennale to contemporary art fans, the Chelsea Flower Show is to plant people: the most glamorous, most famous, most celebrated garden show in a country known for taking its gardening very, very seriously.”

Be sure to keep up with Felicia’s travels to the Chelsea Flower Show as she takes in a bevy of British gardens and shares them with us (or rubs them in our faces, however you like to look at it).
