“Floating down the stream of time, from life to life with me.”
This year’s Chelsea Flower Show featured a very special tribute to the life, music and philosophy of George Harrison: “From Life to Life, A Garden For George.” The garden, which was designed by Yvonne Innes in collaboration with Olivia Harrison, and sponsored by The Material World Charitable Foundation, colourfully depicts George’s journey from the material to the spiritual world.
“George himself was an immensely talented and passionate gardener,” Olivia Harrison said of the garden’s inspiration. “As George dedicated his autobiography ‘to gardeners everywhere’ we do the same along with love and gratitude to George for the music, gardens and thoughtful legacy he left behind.”
“The comments from our co-exhibitors and from the general public were fabulous,” said designer Yvonne Innes. “For Olivia and I, it was exactly as I had drawn it and exactly as we had hoped it would be – a perfect tribute to George The Gardener.”
We now invite you to take a stroll down the garden path at www.georgeharrison.com/garden. The website chronicles the journey of building the garden, from concept design to exhibition at the Chelsea Flower Show. Through vivid photos and video, you can watch George’s garden spring to life before your eyes.
We hope you will enjoy.
