AFewDaysLefttoBidonCelebri As mentioned recently, Elton has partnered with London's most prestigious flower show to raise money for charity.

Along with other British notables like John Hurt, Lily Allen and Jamie Oliver, the Rocket Man has decorated and autographed a garden gnome that has been on display at the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show.

The gnomes are now being auctioned on eBay to raise money for a charity that hopes to encourage young people's interest in gardening.

The gnome that Elton donated was inspired by "Paris," a Gnomeo & Juliet character. 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 (The photo appears above this article).
