May Scavenger hunt

Well May has flown by and time to post my scavenger hunt pictures.  Decided to try and get them all from my visit to The Chelsea Flower Show, didn't quite get them all, but here we go...................


Train track LINES on the journey to London


We took the bus from Liverpool Street to Chelsea and went along Fleet Street EC4

Along the route we saw this CONSTRUCTION site.  It always amazes me that there is anywhere left to develop in the centre of London

The bus went along Whitehall and this is the SKYLINE that we saw - The Palace of Westminster and The Elizabeth Tower which houses Big Ben

This Chelsea Pensioner is SOMETHING PATRIOTIC he was happy to have his photo taken by the visitors to the show.

This is the MAP of the showground, we needed it to find our way around, it is a very big event.

Loved this DOOR which was part of one of the trade stands selling stone arches, probably to make your garden look like it has been there for years

i am not sure what these AQUA coloured flowers are called but they looked amazing in the Great Pavillion

WASHING hung out to dry - just wanted to show off my new tea towels from Next!
Everytime I dig on my allotment I find BROKEN glass.  I collect it in this bucket, luckily we haven't been cut by any.  I have no idea why there is so much.

Can you guess what this KEY opens?


The George Cross FLAG fluttering outside our local florist.
Well that is it for this month, off to look a the list for June.  I love seeing what people from other countries have come up with and also photos of familiar places locally.  Take a look at the others Here

I really like that you did the hunt as a theme/journey. My favourites are door, washing (love the 'cook' tea towel) and key (love the fob). x

A nice collection of photos, I love those aqua flowers and the shed keyring!

So kind of you to share your trip with us via the scavenger hunt! My fav would have to be that very spiffy gentleman in red. Is this a retired military veteran? I am unfamiliar with the term pensioner in this context. Happy Weekend Wishes!

Hi Lizzy! It was fun to see how you tied all your pictures into Chelsea. That makes the scavenger hunt more challenging. Nicely done! What a skyline!

Well done for getting photos for all the clues, I managed only half of them.
