Van Gogh Living Wall

If you've been in Trafalgar Square this past week, you might have wondered what was happening on the western facade of the National Gallery. There's been a lot of planting going on. It appears somebody has been overcome by the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and has decided to bring Van Gogh's painting A Wheatfield with Cypresses to life as a "living wall". General Electric has forked out the readies to pay specialist horticulture and design company ANS to use over 8,000 plants of more than 26 different varieties to "paint" the picture. It will grow throughout the summer and autumn until the end of October. I suppose it's a way of appearing to be green, but CLICK for the National Gallery's real way.
