Chelsea Flower Show 2017

It took me 17 years but there I am, hooked, and a big fan of this quintessential english celebration of gardens, nature, spring and creative hybris. Every year, around the end of May, Chelsea takes on a new face, trucks line up to create the most exquisite display of themed garden fantasy on the shops windows and all people flock to the mass of all celebrations on the grounds of the Royal Hospital of Chelsea. This year the annual festival of floral art chose the theme « Floral Safari » for the neighborhood transformations. Here are some of my favourites, in particular The Hari Hotel, Where Mr and Mrs Fox are shown having tea, and the natural grazing giraffe in Kiki Mc Donough’s front window.
