The story of the snail (see- http://www.slow-life.co.uk/2011/10/08/snailgate/) started slowly with an article in the Northwest Evening Mail and spread via the Telegraph and the Mail until it finally reached its pinnacle with the Chris Evan’s Breakfast Show. The story was used in the ‘Head 2 Headlines’ slot in which a celebrity is asked to choose between two headline stories. Chris Evans’ celebrity guest was Nancy Dell’Ollio, who was asked to choose between our snail story and the story of John Travolta being refused a table at KFC. She chose John Travolta, bless her.
This video is a slideshow of photos of the garden taking shape over the ten days it took to build it, plus a few of my favourite shots of the finished garden and the people who came to see it.
