Rectangular Flower Towers

From a distance, this display at the Chelsea Flower show, in the Flower Hall, wasn’t too impressive. It looked like a gray wall. Only stepping up right to it and getting up close and personal could you appreciate the exquisite assemblage of flowers and the great skill someone (or many) had with placement, shape and color.

And I didn’t realize it until I saw the photograph above, and I didn’t know he was standing there at the time (I hadn’t found him yet), but the gentleman in the gray jacket that you can only see half of his body is Mike Shadrack, hosta man extraordinaire. He was preying on the world’s gardeners visiting Chelsea with his encyclopedic knowledge of hostas.

The yellow/gold column.
The reds column.
The purple column.
The green column. Yes, those are artichokes on the bottom.

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.
