May’s comment: This year’s Chelsea in Bloom (22-27 May) is working in association with the Elephant Family, an international NGO dedicated to protecting the Asian elephant from extinction. “They fund pioneering projects across Asia to reconnect forest fragments, re-establish elephant migratory routes and help create safe homes for both elephants and people.”
Thus all the animals in the streets. But not everyone followed the theme … more later.
