Chelsea in Bloom

One of the highlights of the Chelsea year is the Chelsea Flower Show.  Chelsea in Bloom really brings an already vibrant area to life.  Here is Zveszdana from Chelsea library talking about her love of the show and sharing some of her wonderful collection of photographs from previous years.

The highlight of working in Chelsea must be Chelsea in Bloom held in May each year.  Taking part in this prestigious annual floral art show, which transforms the streets of Chelsea every year, is the best way to celebrate the start of summer. It is so exciting to wonder around Sloane Street, Sloane Square, Pavilion Road and King’s Road and observe Chelsea’s restaurants, shops and hotels embellishing themselves with creative floral designs. The riot of ideas, flowers, colours, textures, smells is breath-taking, budding with originality.


I was looking forward to seeing what the talented designers had prepared for this year. Considering the theme, ‘Extraordinary Voyages’, inspired by ‘Around the world in 80 days’. It evokes a spirit of optimism, adventure and a reminder of the golden age of travel. I can just imagine how spectacular this would have been. The great news is that we can still enjoy the flower show virtually so that we can stay at a safe distance but still enjoy the show.  This year it will run from 18th to 23rd May, click here to join in and keep an eye on our social media channels for some fun Chelsea in Bloom crafts.
