Synchronised bedding

You may know that it was forbidden to use the Olympic symbols, colours and various other London 2012 logos even for flower beds. Innovative designers gave this heavy-handed veto the finger in various ways in order to celebrate the Olympics with flowers. My own particular favourite is this tribute to synchronised swimming in Queens Park Loughborough, utilising  a series of sculptures set amongst blue bedding and rippling grasses.

Great fun - as horticulturalists, we should never take our art and craft too seriously! Synchronised bedding - a new sport for 2016!
