    you should be able to figure it out...
    Nice series Pete. I guess it's British, but similar get togethers aren't that unusual elsewhere, although maybe not over flowers and not often on such a grand estate!

    I love the last shot of the little guy and the lion!

    Thanks Ray
    Hylands House was built in the mid 1720's in the Neo Classical style with over 500 acres of grounds; and gardens created later by Sir Humphrey Repton. Its last private owner died in the 1960's and the estate was taken over by the borough. During WW2 it was a German POW camp and for a while the HQ of the SAS. It doubled as the White House in a 2004 film "Chasing Liberty". Apparently it is the 2nd most visited attraction in the UK (1.8m visitors in 2014); a fact which surprised me considering that the Tower of London received just over 3m visitors and is infinitely more interesting.

    Cheers

    Pete
