Chelsea Fringe 2013

Chelsea Fringe Day 2013 Ambler Road London N4

The Chelsea Fringe has drawn to a close for this year, but there were over 200 events in London alone, and some very jolly horticulturally themed happenings and gorgeous gardens to visit throughout the 3 week period (more on this in next post).

Our own Cake Sunday a week ago was a hugely enjoyable afternoon. Fortunately we had bright sunny skies and the delightful trio, above, of Chelsea Pensioners, John, Bob and Bill opening our afternoon for us.

Tim Bushe gave a marvelous topiary demonstration,

resulting in our herd looking more elephanty than ever (after their fifth cut),

cakes (and consumers) were plentiful,

and the chilled atmosphere allowed both neighbours and visitors to mingle and chat, collect free plants, seeds

and conjure up a good number of seed bombs. Hopefully our streets will look the greener for it later in the year!

Finally, our splendid afternoon was perfectly rounded off by Jo Stephenson from ‘Can You Dig It’ singing songs from the allotment and encouraging Finsbury Park residents to join in with choruses about cauliflowers. Not sure that we’ll be able to top this next year!…..

p.s. Michelle from Veg Plotting encouraged other bloggers to virtually join in with tea and cake events all over the country with The Bloggers’ Cut-great to see others embracing the connection between cake and gardening!
