Well its Chelsea Flower Show week again here in ol’ London town.

 

Here are a few links relating to this years show; including a garden representing world horse welfare – and the saving of abused horses.  A sculptor has made a life size horse using horseshoes – and it is amazing as you can see in the photos.  It was inspired by a horse named ‘Clippy’ – which was rescued.

 

The horse garden includes plants like ragwort – it is an educational garden to inform the public about what plants are harmful to horses, and what ones are good for them.
