Flower displays of the Olympics rings have been unveiled in Kew Gardens to celebrate the 100 day countdown to the London 2012 games.
The Olympic rings are fifty metres long and contain 20,000 plants.
The flowers were planted five days ago by a team of volunteers and will be in full flower for the summer. The display will be visible from the Heathrow flight path.
A British businessman spends around £500,000 a year on funding young athletes from the UK.
After years of planning and preparation, there are just 100 days to go. Today, a series of events will mark the special occasion.
