RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2003

I've uploaded my Chelsea 2003 photos.

The flying gnome was particularly amusing, while James Dyson's Escher-inspired water feature was rather unusual...

Gnomes look great! Prefer the lovely lauping hare, however.

Did you catch the BBC Online article that doesn't quite explain the Escher-y water feature?

Yes. It actually makes sense whe you see it working...

Well, it explained it enough for me.

They showed this on the NZ TV news down here. Seeing Simon's photo made me think the water was probably pumped out at the top like it is, but on TV it did look like the water was running uphill so I wasn't sure if that was in fact the case. Ah, but it's all done with bubbles. Very clever.

Good pictures. Lots of colour. I still have never managed to get to the Chelsea Show - too crowded for me I expect. Hampton Court possibly.

Re: flower show
It does get pretty crowded - which is why we tend to go to the Thursday evening opening. It's cheapest, too!
