Although a little late on the update, as promised in our earlier news post gardens abroad, we have put together a selection of images to share our experience of the Chelsea RHS Flower and Garden Show 2016, which we had the pleasure of especially travelling to in May earlier this year.
A highlight for us was Phillip Johnson’s visually astonishing design for the 5000 poppies project, which extended across the Hospital grounds in a sea of red.
Maximising our time, we visited a number of renowned gardens surrounding London and went hunting for invigorating lush urban spaces throughout the city.
Sissinghurst castle garden – Kent, United Kingdom
Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew – London, United Kingdom
Christchurch Greyfriars Garden – London, United Kingdom
A little detour via Italy additionally provided us with an opportunity observe how such a vibrant culture greens their outdoor spaces.
Villa Rufolo – Ravello, Italy
Villa Cimbrone – Ravello, Italy
Villa Medici – Rome, Italy
And of course, just wandering the streets of cities and town can prove inspiring…
