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!

Bought this in 2011 as a first year TC plant, as well as The King, and it has been slow growing, but perhaps it didn't like where it was sited. It grows in a pot now.
