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.

I just want to thank you for all the time and effort you put in to these lovely articles...your photos are wonderful, as are the descriptions.
I was born in Oxford, but have never had the opportunity to return, so thank you for showing me the land of my birth.

Dear Carol, I am so glad you enjoyed the Articles! I have a cottage near Oxford in the countryside that was built in 1412, and I love to go up there to relax. It is but tiny to what some people have, but it does the wife and myself.
It is of course thatched and a listed building, with a spiral oak staircase to the bedrooms upstairs. I know Oxford very well and Banbury which is not far either!
Why haven't you got a Union Jack microbadge as I put it on for Dave to do! A lot of people who came from the UK have them!
Thank you for your most kind comments.
Keep safe and warm.
Regards from a cold and windy England.
Neil.
