Animals Made From Flowers Appear Across Chelsea

Not got tickets to the Chelsea Flower Show? No problem, you can still get your does of floral goodness, as Chelsea In Bloom is back for the 11th year.

37 shops, bars and hotels around the Chelsea area have decorated their windows with floral decorations on a Rio Carnival theme. That means tropical palms, topiary elephants, colourful macaws crafted out of flowers, and mannequins in their Mardi Gras best.

Take a stroll through the displays with this map, or enjoy the sights from a rickshaw tour.

Just down the road, the Chelsea Flower Show is combined with celebrations for the Queen's 90th birthday for Belgravia In Bloom. Local businesses are offering flower-inspired food and drink, window displays, wreath-making classes and a floral photography exhibition.

Chelsea in Bloom takes place 23-28 May. It's free to view the displays and you can vote for your favourite here.

If you are lucky enough to have tickets for the Chelsea Flower Show, look out for this installation of 300,000 crocheted poppies.
