|Neil, that is amazing! Really must transplant across the pond! Ah, England ! A country of plant enthusiasts! Heaven!|
Thanks so much for sharing the beauty!

|Dear Janice, may I welcome you as the first guest to view my Article! We have often been called a Nation of shopkeepers and gardeners, and that is very true. Also we have what is called 'Green roofs here', they are covered in either Sempervivens or Sedums, except we call them House leeks.|
I hope you enjoyed my trek around the beauty of Hampton Court Palace, even though I did get covered in mud! Lynn and many members of her amazing forum have been most kind to me, so I always look out for something for her forum and of course your good selves. From the Horse and dog in Part 1 to whatever I can find.
I do so hope you can accompany me in Part 4?
Kindest regards from England.

|Neil you never disappoint me. : )|
I love it all, but especially love the the wonderful trough gardens. There is a talent required to put them together so skillfully. Wish I had that skill. Maybe if I study them long enough I will acquire it.
I look forward to the next installment of your Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

|Dear Lynn, you are too kind! There must be stuff that you do not like?|
I knew some of your forum readers would like the Sempervivum's, well at least I hope so!
Regards from a sunny England.

Hope your mother is feeling better.

|Dear Magga, I am glad you enjoyed my Articles as I have not heard from you for awhile! I trust you are well? Part 4 of Hampton Court will be out as soon as I can get it done. Unfortunately my mother has many hospital visits to go to, which takes a lot of my time up at the moment. My father has gone blind due to diabetes and now they have found out he has leukemia. That means he cannot be left alone when my mother goes to Hospital, for obvious reasons,|
I go over and stay with him and make sure he gets his lunch and if mother is late back, cook both their dinners as well. As you can imagine trying to run two houses, two gardens, cook for them and us is not easy at the best of times.
But you only get one mum and dad!

|I too have been busy preparing my daughter for mowing to the Netherlands where she is going to study music. I have been sewing a couple of dresses and skirts for her. She is flying on the 10th August and Bragi my husband and I are going with her as "carriers" of luggage. We are staying in Utrecht for a week. |
I have a father 92 years old who I visit at least twice a week. He has been in a nursing home since January this year. I wash his clothes and cut his hair when he need a haircut, he likes that. I love helping him with things I can . Hope your mother is getting better soon. Give her my best wishes.
