rhs chelsea flower show 2009

tickets are already on sale for RHS Chelsea flower show. How do I know? Well I follow them on twitter! The RHS are on twitter here and of course donegan landscaping is on twitter here.

rhs & donegan landscaping on twitter

it’s amazing to think that even an organisation like the rhs [on the go since 1804] is embracing technology and using it to its advantage.

And it’s also, maybe, something that Irish event organisers should consider? It is for sure a lot better than the days of old where email addresses meant an inbox full of daily deletions….

Bulaidh bós lads.

electric pink [boat] tweet up

tweet up at the pink boat?

tweet up at the pink boat?

[yeah – i moved it…] Electric Picnic is nearing – click here

Adrian proposed it.Maryrose is bringing two. Marie Boran thought it would be great. David said he’d join in. Frankiep & Ciara are aboard now. I know Rick [on hols at the mo’] will be there. And of course i’ll be there

You don’t ‘have to’ wear pink, you don’t have to be able to swim – you don’t even have to have been dragged seen the abba movie. What you do have to do is be slightly humorous, mldly inspired, not be a fan of the cheeky girls and be up for a bit of a laugh.

It’s in the art trail at no 11. Casino Royal Boat – that’s another story but – one I didn’t want to use for Bloom 2008. [I’ll explain later…]

11). ‘Casino Royal’ Boat – donated by Peter Donegan
The 1957 Royal Cruiser Mark II is reported to have been originally christened Casino Royale and allegedly featured in the James Bond movie of the same name in 1967.

Fast forward to 2008 Peter Donegan gives it it’s inaugural land trip to the Bloom Festival where it featured, freshly painted pink (“to make people smile”) in his fully recyclable garden that he designed & landscaped for the festival. Wanting to find a good home for it after the festival he launched a national campaign on 2FM which is when we heard of it and were happy to adopt it in exchange for some festival tickets which were auctioned for the Niall Mellon Township Trust www.irishtownship.com where they hope to build a Garden of Hope community garden.

Back to the festival…. It could be a load of headless chickens in pink headbands – it could be just a bunch of hippies at a music festival. But how many times have you ever seen a pink boat… Join the Electric tweet-up and sign up for the revolution…. be sure to wear some [sun] flowers in your hair.

What’s a tweet-up. Well it’s a meet up for twitter-ers, I suppose.
