Chelsea Flower Show - Then and Now

I saw something about the ongoing Chelsea Flower Show in London.  It reminded me that Buzzy and I were there one year, but not intentionally.   

We were in London on our own.  (Now that I think about it, this was the only overseas trip we ever took where we were not part of an organized tour group.  We were just hanging out and taking in the sights.) 

While looking for something else, we accidently stumbled our way into the area hosting the Flower Show.  It was hectic and crowded and we asked someone "What's going on?"  When we were told "It's the Chelsea Flower Show,"  Buzzy's immediate response was "Let's get the hell out of here."  Which we did.

Some great lyrics in this video here for you such as "it takes a man to live, it takes a woman to make him compromise."
