Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace with tulips
The floral display in this garden is changed with the seasons rather than having permanent planting. Here the main feature is tulips, with low growing flowers providing a background carpet below them. See NO7464 : Site of former railway station in St Cyrus for a summer display, twelve years before when there were more trees and hedges between this garden and the palace.
