Hampton Court Palace Flower Show (Part 3)

By NEILMUIR1
July 26, 2011

As the sun came out, my day at Hampton Court beside the River Thames was getting better, apart from the odd shower. Now I could at last get out and wander on this hallowed ground. Join me as I finish in the floral marquee and go for another trek.

I want to go see this place for myself. Just love all the displays and flowers. They don't do flower shows like that here. We have a small show something like it at the Ventura Fair. People make arrangements and put in a garden display. There are also some professional garden companies that display there also. I will be there next week and will post some pictures for you. Till I get back to gardening here I will just have to count on all my friends to keep posting pictures for my enjoyment.

Thank you!! I just love it all. Would be very hard for me to pick just one thing and say it was the best.

Dear Marti, get yourself over here and get lost in the maze. I will gladly take you around and show you what an amazing place this is, even without a flower show!
Fish and chips and a pint?
When are you coming?
Group hug
