Photo a day....24th May
Guess where I've been today! Easy! Chelsea.
This is just beautiful. Impossible to photo well because the best angle was into the sun, but be assured it is beautiful. I am a sucker for modern technology if it serves a useful purpose and it looks good too...this does. When it is operating it is so graceful.
The contraption is a rain catcher, a wind pump and more. For more info look here http://www.rhs.org.uk/chelsea/2007/exhibitors/showgardens/chetwoods.asp
The planting was rather good too.....and the hard landscaping.
More tomorrow....I've just got back (having made an earlier ferry by the skin of my teeth) and need to get horizontal as soon as possible! My ankles are twice as wide as they should be, and I'm definitely melting. (The fridge has packed up so my beer was warm....ugggh! Guess what I'll be doing tomorrow...waiting all day for the repairman!)
