Chelsea Flower Show
Apart from the odd mermaid looking too much like tin foil for a gold medal, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2011 has produced some terrific designs. I always find this mixture of art, architecture and horticulture fascinating. It's a shame President Obama and Michelle missed VIP Day. The medals were handed out early on Tuesday morning. Click the title link for all the winners. You'll also find a photo of Anemone "Wild Swan", shown by Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants, which is the RHS Chelsea 2011 Plant of the Year. CLICK for a disappointing BBC audio slideshow by Paul Kerley, not one of his best.
