As mentioned recently, Elton has partnered with London’s most prestigious flower show to raise money for charity.
Along with other top British notables like Helen Mirren, the Rocket Man has decorated and autographed a garden gnome that will be put on display later this month at the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show.
After the show is over, the gnomes will be auctioned on eBay to raise money for a charity that hopes to encourage young people’s interest in gardening.
According to the True Oldies Web site, the gnome that Elton donated was inspired by “Paris,” the rock star gnome one of Gnomeo & Juliet‘s characters. As most fans are aware, ”Gnomeo” is the animated film produced by the songster’s movie company, Rocket Pictures. This figure wears big, oversized glasses like Elton sometimes does, and is covered with sequins.
The musician also has autographed an additional set of Gnomeo & Juliet characters for the auction.
