    There were several requests to see the garden/exhibit that I worked on at Chelsea. Looking through my digital pics I realize I did not have any of the garden fully completed. Boy I must have been tired. Here are few that I do have. Enjoy!

    And, finally a view of some of the plantings in the garden proper.

    Oh wow, what an enormous project! It's stunning. And you guys put that up in five days, is that what you said in the other post? I can't imagine how much had to happen to get to the final product.
    I wish I had room for a fountain and an olive terrace, but I don't think they would both fit on my 8' x 6' patio. :)

    The garden took 21 days to construct and plant. I was there for two weeks planting. It took 10 days to plant the 'outside' of the garden and four days to plant the garden proper. I also built some of the low walls on the olive terraces. There was a total of 14 people involved including the designer. The garden was viewed by the public (160,000 attendees) for 5 days and then the garden was torn out. It only exisits in photos, film and peoples' imaginations now.

    Oh I see, that makes a little more sense. Still, what an effort! Hats off.
