‘Beneath a Mexican Sky’ is one of the most eye-catching gardens.
Bright, but calming. The cool still water meets with fresh pouring splashes.
‘Gosho No Niwa’ – No Wall; No War garden took inspiration from history. The residence of Japanese Emperors inspired this garden: unthreatened by attack, it required neither moat nor wall. An open space, allowing viewing from all aspects, expresses the communal spirit that allowed the imperial family to continue for a millennia. Tranquility flowers from unobstructed views.
The graceful crowd of Acer trees complement the turquoise structures.
Drawing inspiration from Canada’s environmentally-significant 1.2 billion acre boreal forest and waterways, the Royal Bank of Canada garden celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada and the 10th year of the RBC Blue Water Project – a programme dedicated to protecting the world’s fresh water resources.
Every corner of Chelsea is beautiful.
I was rather pleased with this picture of David Austin (of David Austin roses fame) happily sitting amongst his roses…
If you want to see really good photographs of celebrities though, this blog is probably going to disappoint… I’m just not very good at paparazzi-ing! I’ll happily take pictures of 3/4 angles of celebrities, unseen by the subject, as that’s less embarrassing.
Like this picture, of Mary Berry.
Judi Dench met David Austin under the rose bower to smell the beautiful apricot colour rose that was named after her.
Ellie Simmonds looking lovely at the gardens!
Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch.
