Bowie_750Windrush Square was last week home to a tiny garden celebrating David Bowie’s music.

It was created by The Pothole Gardener, Steve Wheen, working with thejoyofplants.co.uk, an initiative of The Flower Council of Holland.
He created two other miniature gardens a “garden fit for a Queen” on the South Bank to celebrate her official birthday and a recreation of the winning garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.

Bowie_400The Music Garden in Brixton came complete with miniature instruments, speakers and a playlist including hits from Bowie.
