Postcard from Chelsea: Wednesday


The structure I would most like to nick from Chelsea and take home: Roger Platts' wooden summer house from The M&G Garden. Traditional, classic, and utterly beautiful.

Wouldn't you like to be sitting having tea right there?

And the craftsmanship was superb. This finally made my carpenter hubby understand the point of Chelsea. Carved from Sussex oak by 'a local craftsman' (who clearly wants to stay anonymous - don't know why, I'd be shouting it from the rooftops if I'd made this), it's held together with traditional oak pegs and perfect proportions.

I thought it was great that M&G had the sense to let Roger Platts go ahead and come up with something that was not only a crowd-pleaser but had such a wonderful spirit of place about it. I thought it deserved a gold medal - nice to see the sponsors doing something classy
