Last week it was the Chelsea Flower Show and Tom and I checked it out, having never been before. The best thing by far was my Dad's artisan retreat, it was really friendly, honest and considered (and fr ee seeds!). It was great looking at all the gardens however a large majority of the statues on show were very mad, see here.

I've found some flowery goodness to share with you. Firstly here is an i-D shoot from 2005 showing some awesome Paul Smith shirts modeled on a ice cream print wipe clean tablecloth - what more could you want?

Above is a fantastic flower holder designed by my pal Marianne out of polystyrene packaging - http://cargocollective.com/MMH/Pretty-Polystyrene . And below is another piece of work from my friends. Francis and Josh have developed a new way of sending flowers in the post, inspired by Columbia Rd flower market - http://francisnorth.com/, http://joshua-lake.com/

Pettitoe, Suffolk 2011, by Juergen Teller (above)

And finally Nikki Tibbles, florist Wild at Heart is always a treat to look into the window of, whenever I walk past.

Flower power!
