One of the highlights of the spring season in London is the Royal Horticultural Society's Chelsea Flower Show. The show is held on the ground of the Royal Chelsea Hospital and dates back to 1862. Each of the gardens on the 11-acre grounds is designed by a landscape architect or nursery, and sponsored by a charity or a corporation.

A Fens garden, another award winner.Real life garden winner. (looks like it should be the one above!)
This won the prize for flower arrangements... I thought it was a hat for Ascot.
Chelsea Flower Show is sold out for 2009, but if you plan now, you can probably get a ticket for 2010.
