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.

Nice smaller tree blooms much longer than a crabapple, but the blooms can get rather stinky. Birds do seem to want to eat the fruit. Bloom start out pink, turn white, then go back to pink before falling off. Branches will shatter in heavy snows. Good to at least zone 5.
