    With planting out the garden etc I thought I would share the site to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2008 which is currently happening in England. It is not simply a showcase for flowers but they also have several categories of garden designs form some of the worlds top designers (drool) Entries from around the world compete to win 'Best inShow"... have a looksee round... eye candy for sure!

    I have been to the Chelsea Flower Show with my mom, about 10 years ago. It was wonderful! Nothing like any flower show here, we go to Boston every year, which is nice, but pales in comparison to Chelsea.

    I love the garden designs and look forward each year to viewing them on the BBC television coverage... especially from the different countries...I saw the kangaroo fern for the first time there and actively searched out this plant as I love ferns but have problems keeping them healthy in the dry heated living room. This fern is fab for dealing with a non-humid environment.

    I was watching the TV last night and someone has apparently included a chicken coop in one of the designs [​IMG] The presenter said it cost £3400 ($6800) though . . . and frankly people on here have ones which are just as nice if not nicer.
