Shows of Hands at Chelsea Flower Show

It's great to have the opportunity to connect together both Chelseas:  Flower Show and Fringe via my Shows of Hands project. These photos are designed to give you a slightly different flavour of this year's flower show.

The main picture shows the meticulous plant preparation that goes on before it's even selected to adorn an exhibitor's stand in the Great Pavilion. From top right to bottom left we also have:

  • Part of the quirky bench which greets visitors when they enter the show ground
  • One of the judges refuses to show me how the assessment of the show gardens is progressing
  • Paul Debois shifts his photography kit in preparation for another shot in the Great Pavilion
  • A more unusual view of a Chelsea Pensioner
  • Beatrix Potter makes friends with Peter Rabbit
  • Part of Burgon and Ball's trade stand
  • Cleve West takes yet another phone call

I was especially pleased to see Paul because his work inspired Shows of Hands and I'd wanted to connect up with his Wildlings project for Chelsea Fringe in some way. Job done :)

Don't forget Mr Linky is still open for your Shows of Hands blog contributions. If you'd like to take part but aren't sure how, this link takes you to all the details including Twitter, Facebook and email options if you haven't got a blog.
