Hampton Court Palace Flower Show (Part 4)

September 7, 2011

The large and small Show Gardens at Hampton Court were next on my agenda. The ancient, majestic trees in the distance beckoned me towards them. This most beautiful place offered so many things to see, let's take a look at them.

As usual very interesting, as for the color, hmmm those pink walls would be a lot better is they were a pastel blue, but everything else was great. Thank you Neil.

Dear Doris, I was not in love with the colour either but I did not design it! In a Historic Royal Palace they should have left the walls as they were in the stone colour, not in that colour! Personally I would have left the plants to do the talking in colours as they were superb.
We have just come back from Norfolk, and the weather was awful with a force 10 gale! The Guesthouse we were staying in on the seafront was getting hit by the sea it was so bad!
However we did find a thatched pub in a village on the way and it was beautiful. Lovely homemade pies, proper beers, what England is all about. Just behind the pub was a 11th century church and I was amazed by it, I kid you not it was awesome. So I had to see it, even in the wind; mind blowing inside it as well, and built in early 1040AD.
I Hope you are well?
Loads of love.

Dear Chris, I am very glad that you enjoyed the little tour of Hampton court! It is such a beautiful place and everyone who goes there falls in love with it, then they first feel its presence.and indeed history, that is it for they are spellbound.
I so hope you are well?
Regards from a very cold England.
Neil.

Yes, doing well Neil, thank you. Hope you are too.

I'm afraid our weather is cooling down already too, although probably not as cold as yours is. Time to start dreaming about things to do differently in the gardens next year!

Dear Chris, with the weather like it has been and the plants telling me we are set for a bad winter the wife and I are thinking of hibernating! It is a bit cold, wet and windy here, to say the least.
Glad you are well, that has cheered me up.
Keep warm and safe.
Neil.
