Trip to England

A couple of shots from my September trip to England - Chenies Manor, parts of which date back to 1460. Very interesting place, with so much history, still in private hands. Henry VIII and Elizabeth I were frequent visitors and made some important decisions here.

I got there by Tube from London, followed by a walk down this scary country lane - nowhere to go but into the stinging nettle if a car was coming. I don't think the locals have any trouble...

If you are interested in joining me in May on a trip to the Cotswalds and Chelsea Flower Show (May 17-25, 2008), sponsored by the Upstate Gardeners' Journal, visit Sign up soon - tickets to the Chelsea Flower show sell out fast, by sometime in November!
