Madiba in Chelsea
One of the few benefits of my paying the licence fee for profligate BBC is its annual coverage of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which I enjoy. This year, amongst many interesting exhibits, it showed us the Kirstenbosch stand from South Africa in the Great Pavilion. Kirstenbosch has created this Tribute to Nelson Mandella out of dried proteas. The stand won Silver-Gilt Flora (CLICK).
