Chelsea was a-buzzing yesterday with the most gloriously fat bumblebees. Check out this wee chubber with his powdery yellow pollen sack.

David Austin rose, Pimms in the sun and a Chelsea Pensioner, just some of the grand visions from the Chelsea Flower Show.

Vertical planting was a big trend this year. Loved this living tower with drought-resistant plants from the Future Nature garden, which also included a vibrant wildflower meadow, butterfly mounds and insect towers.
