Chelsea at the Wheatsheaf

I have long been an admirer of the garden at the side of the Wheatsheaf, so on a recent trip there, I took some photos of this glorious area created by the green fingered landlord in what was a carport/smoking area. He has nurtured and encouraged his plants to grow magnificently in this area, and then arranged them most carefully to give a wonderful effect hence the title. Next time you're passing the Wheatsheaf in Newport Street, make time to go and have a drink in there and have a look at the plants.
Here's what you see from the pavement:
And on closer inspection:
 A fern uncurling above, and below a Solomon's seal looking perfect.
 Below a Hosta
 and last but not least an Azalea in full flower.

These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago, so it's worth a trip to see what's 'peaking' now.
