My favourite show garden at RHS Chelsea has to be the Window Through Time garden designed by Roger Platts to capture “the design trends and themes of Chelsea shows past and present”. I just loved the planting, the framing sculpture, the domed topiary at one end (above) and the more natural victorian cottage garden style at the other (below). It was a delight to photograph.I love the green wall in this roof garden by Nigel Dunnett, the designer of the London Olympic Park wildflower planting. You can’t tell from this photo, but the garden used water beautifully. The Laurent-Perrier Garden by Ulf Nordfjell is a bit too stuffy for me to really, really love it, but the work that has gone into creating it is frankly impressive. More show garden photos to follow very shortly!
These floral paintings are by Nashville based artist Rebekka Seale. It appears they are part of a series, one painting for each month of 2013. I am excited to see the rest as the year goes by.
I’ve made paper flowers before using a similar technique (crepe paper, wire, florists tape) but they looked nothing like this – so detailed and gorgeous!
