London's Chelsea Flower Show is in full swing and the weather is behaving beautifully so far. The 90th birthday of the Queen has been the source of much celebration--including this striking profile of Her Majesty--made out of hydrangeas, sweet peas, alliums, freesias, and roses.

Chelsea consists of the famous Show Gardens which get all the attention, and two other categories: the Fresh gardens and the Artisan gardens. These are smaller and sometimes more inventive: an opportunity for less prominent designers to get a start.
