A London Safari

All over Chelsea, almost life-sized floral animals stood proudly in the heat … and wilting a little during an amazing run of very warm weather.We saw … Elephants
Baby cubsLions and lionessOh my!This one looks like it’s up to no good! Giraffes …
They seem popular.Apes!!!
And a monkey eating bananas! A pink …HippoColourful birds of the jungle

And even crocodiles!Yes, it’s Chelsea in Bloom again – in conjunction with the week of the Chelsea Flower Show!

And a what?!?!?!?!A Monster?!?!?!

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.
