Behind the scenes diary for The Victorian Aviary Garden at Chelsea Flower Show and The Girlguiding UK Centenary Garden at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2010

Pebble Dash

Posted by Philippa Pearson on 30 Apr 2010 at 04:16 PM

A week until we are on site at Chelsea. Maggy Howarth, who is creating a rather fabulous Peacock pebble mosaic, has been dashing across the country gathering more stones for her creation. She is using a mixture of green slate, pebbles of varying colours and sizes and semi-precious stones including Lapis Lazuli to bring highlights of colour to the peacock's tail. The mosaic path is quite wide at nearly 3 metres and leads up to the 'throne', the awesome splendour of the Victorian aviary itself. The path is made in large sections and will be fitted together on site, rather like a large jigsaw: hope they don't lose any of the pieces!

Jonathan, who is in charge of getting the aviary built up in Kendal, has made several phone calls to me this week regarding the colour of the building: as of this morning, I think we were up to six colours which had been dismissed but at last, a colour has been agreed on. It's been especially mixed to match the colour as close as we can to Waddesdon's amazing aviary masterpiece. The Chelsea aviary is being painted this weekend, including gold for the ornamental embellishments. Photos to follow!
