|The Telegraph Garden|
The Chelsea Flower Show is my favourite event of the year, and this year was wonderful. The weather was much kinder than last year - when it was was so cold - and the gardens more interesting. I particularly loved The Telegraph garden designed by Tommaso del Buono and Paul Gazerwitz (above) as well as the 'Best in Show' garden by Luciano Giubbieli for Laurent Perrier (below).

My favourite Japanese designer Kazayuki Ishihara again excelled himself with a 'Best in Show' artisan garden aptly named 'Paradise', but I am beginning to tire a little of his cushions of moss and relentless traditional imagery and hope that next year he might try something more avant-garde (as his early creations using water on glass, were).
