|Dear Jo Ann, there is a lot more to see yet! Wait till Part 2. Having won a Silver, Silver Gilt and a Gold Medal at Chelsea it takes a lot of hard work.|
You get a month to build it for the one week at Chelsea, and it must be perfect in every respect! Then it is sold off and ripped down. The gardens of the Royal Hospital must be put back exactly as they were, which is not easy with the millions of visitors!
I hope to see you in Part 2?
Regards from a Hot England.
p,s, one of your American wild orchids! The Kentucky Lady's slipper orchid.

|Dear Jo Ann, I do having done and won three years in a row. It is draining 18 hours a day work, non stop for a year beforehand. One mistake can cost you dearly!|
