The Royal Hospital Chelsea



My favourites this year:  Dan Pearson's Chatsworth Garden, Ruth Willmott's Breakthrough Breast Cancer Garden and Graham Bodle's Sculptor's Picnic Garden.  My photos don't do any of them justice - wouldn't it be lovely to be able to go in and have a proper look?  



Hope all is well out there ...
