    I'd love to see the orchids. I wanted to visit last time I was in London, but became violently ill, so I couldn't go. Maybe next time.

    Great pics! I absolutely love the bricked up tree. Also them lily leaves are pretty outstanding. I bet they are something else in-person! Thanks for the tour.
