These photos are of one of the gardens at Hampton Court Palace. When we were in the UK I caught up with some of my friends from the Royal School of Needlework which is based at the palace.
When I first started working there these gardens were wild, with large trees and very overgrown. We used to go and have our lunch there sometimes to hide from everyone. Just before I left to live in New Zealand they cleared the gardens and slowly found where the original paths and gardens were. They then re-planted the gardens as they were when they were first created. They look fantastic, I can't imagine how much time goes into keeping them so neat.
