Hearing loss showcased at Chelsea Flower Show

The extraordinary Chelsea Flower Show held in London each year is a mind-blowing display of show gardens, floral displays and everything representing the world of beautiful gardens. This years show, held in May 2011 included a show garden representing the deaf, built by the Doncaster Deaf Trust. I was taken by

the symbolism of the tuning forks and the spectrum of vertical tubes representing the sound scales visually. I imagine that this represents a recognition that persons with hearing loss are still able to comprehend sounds when presented in a different way. I look forward to next years show.
