Hampton Court Palace Flower Show (Part 1)

By NEILMUIR1
July 13, 2011

Built in 1514, Hampton Court Palace was home to King Henry VIII and is stunning, as are the gardens. It is now also home to the worlds biggest flower show! Unfortunately the day I went it rained and rained, but bear with me as I go through acres of mud to show you some of the sights!

Neil, so glad you enjoyed the show in spite of the weather. The aliums and the sweet peas are breathtaking, I love the colours. Ihad forggotten how lovely streptocarpus are its years since I have seen any Those herbaceous borders are wonderful too!! No wonder your feet were tired after all that walking1 i shall look forward to the second article soon. Your camera is so good you seem to be so professional now, thankyou for a lovely tour,I only wish I had the strength these days to go to a show like that ! I thought Chelsea was hard on the legs when I used to go, but Hampton is so much bigger. EILEEN
I do hope you enjoy these as much as I have making them.

Well at least now you can see a lot of it on your computer, which does save the walking in the rain!
Thank you most kindly for your comments and I hope to see you on part 2 and 3.
Love.

oh Neil, I just got to read the article. Wonderful as always. I just LOVED all the lilies for lilies especially the Orienpet Lily are by far the most amazing and fragrant.

I loved the shots of the Fuchsia as well. Those plants are simply wonderful.



Loved the horse and dog made of plants. That is sedum correct?

Patiently awaiting #2 & #3 of the show.

Thank you Neil. I love reading your articles and looking at the beautiful photos you take.


Hugs

Cherie

Dear Cherie, I knew you find it in the end! I am so glad that you l liked the pictures, and the horse plus the dog. They are Sedums I think but there are some Sempervivens as well. There were lots of lilies on show absolutely everywhere and the scent in the marquee was amazing! It is nice to have the worlds biggest flower show, normally the US claims to have the biggest of everything. Rolling on the floor laughing
Hope you are well, now you finally managed to get here.
Regards.
Neil.
p.s. how is ED?
