So far I was only able to find two pics of Sophie and Edward
who attended as well yesterday, and pic 3 is a very rare
pic of Camilla and Prince Philip, I can't remember having seen
them that close before, quite nice:

I also think that this event needs a hat, it seems not the case.
I see. Thanks to that.
Thanks for all the pictures.

I love that photo of Camilla and Prince Philip. I can't help thinking he might have been up to mischief of some sort and she's caught him.

Yes, she attended the day before the official opening and present an award to Charles.

I can't answer that question but Charles apparently prefers Roses with perfume, rather than the varieties that smell of nothing.

Well, I am just delighted with this flower show business. It certainly makes one feel so much better than the run of the mill "stuff" all about. And so very, very British. the queen was just lovely in that marvelous green suit with the huge diamond brooch and pearls. And all those gorgeous flowers. I am so glad I was not there. You see, I am the Black Thumb of Death (known as Black Thumb to all and sudry with shudders and horror). I can look at a rose and the poor thing will just curl up and die. I have six that in spite of my best efforts have not died, at least not yet. And when they bloom-forlorn hope-they are so heartbreakingly beautiful. Except for one. She is the iron maiden. I have pleaded, cajoled, screamed at, caressed, fertiliezd, vitamined, watered and prayed over. and the cruel weed just WILL NOT BLOOOM. Sigh. But then there is always the queen at a flowershow for consolation. Cheers.

I am not as they both enjoy so many things - outdoors life in particular.

They also have a love for at least one person in common - Charles.

Philip may not have been the best of fathers in hindsight for Charles but I have absolutely no doubt that he loves Charles just as I believe Charles loves his father.

Another thing about which he and I agree. IMO a rose without a fragrance is not worth growing, or putting in a vase. There are so many roses which are both beautiful and fragrant, I wonder why people bother breeding roses with no fragrance.

Given my luck I wonder why people bother with roses at all. the weed from Hell, torment unspeakable. And then the blasted beasts BLOOM and you are smitten, enchanted, bewitched and ruined. Sigh. Worse than chocolate. Cheers. PS. How on earth do the Brits manage to get such huge blooms and so many of them. here in SC Other wise known as the side porch of hell, the things get all kinds of horrors, Black Spot (shudder) among them, along with the galloping mange and God only knows what else. I never knew a leaf could turn so many ghastly colours, particularly after you have read all the books and sprayed, fertilized, watered and done 704 other sundry items and all but sacrified new born babies to the moon and the thrips appear. Good Lord deliver us.

Let's not forget the everlasting japanese beetle, Thomas. I must confess to glee in my heart when I go out with my tupperware 'mortuary' of rubbing alcohal every night to 'permanently remove' them.....works for thrips and aphids too.

May 24, 2010. The show, which has 600 exhibitors, opens to the

We've missed you, Queen tells Aussie gardeners at Chelsea

It was a case of absence made a royal heart grow fonder when the Queen dropped by for a chat with Australian gardeners at London's famous Chelsea Flower Show.

Wes Fleming, whose Fleming's Nurseries has co-sponsored the Australian garden for six years, said the Queen was keen to know about the deadly fires which destroyed Fleming's main mature planting ground near Marysville.

"She was really interested in our recovery from the Black Saturday bushfires," he said.

"She actually said, 'We missed you last year'.
