Diarmuid Gavin’s tower for Westland Horticulture won a a silver medal at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show and the Most Creative Show Garden prize, but it has split the opinions of critics. Personally, I have still not made up my mind whether I ‘like’ it or not, but it is most certainly a very impressive structure and was a huge amount of fun to be able to experience it!
Two choices of getting up the structure….
Or since there was a long queue, our other option was a series of narrow and steep ladders, in dresses and heels. (I’m sorry that I have no pictures of attempting to do this – although that is probably a good thing!)
Some views from the inside…
And some of the objects we came across on our journey up the tower….
(this is a genuine picture – from around the third floor up)
and of course the quickest way down… a helter skelter attached to the side of the 80 ft structure.
Just a few pictures of the tower for you to see, what do you think if it?
