I visited this yesterday when I was at Kew Gardens for a big family event. It was lovely to see such beautiful colours in all the dull weather! I would love to be able to have seen this from the air, but am not likely to be flying this year anyway. I will be back later in the spring to visit Kew again; its been many years and I have once again realised what a beautiful retreat this is in the middle of London. I am planning to create some drawings from the photographs I took yesterday too (though probably not of the Olympic circles).

Thank you for your question Maureen. Kew is not an official sponsor. LOCOG has approached a number of organisations and key iconic locations around the UK about hosting a 'Spectacular.' This week the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew showed its commitment to celebrating London 2012 with the set of floral Olympic Rings and the planting of a Coubertin Oak. In order to build anticipation, LOCOG will be marking a number of milestones in the lead up to the start of the Games in July with various events and announcements. LOCOG are working with various stakeholders to prepare for other Horticultural or Natural Spectaculars across the UK. There will be further Spectacular unveilings in the run up to the Games.

What a fantastic idea. The rings look superb and are very creative. Just wish I was going on holiday so that I could see them from the air.
