Strawberry Hill #1

By Karuma1970

If you know West London, you will know Strawberry Hill as the Gothic Revival villa in Twickenham that was built by Horace Walpole in the eighteenth century.

Horace Walpole also got to own a large property in the Blue Mountains near Kingston, Jamaica and called that Strawberry Hill too. Due to the altitude it is is good for growing strawberries but also coffee and the most beautiful flowers.
The property has a long and interesting history but recently belonged to the owner of Island Records and many famous people have stayed there. It is now a hotel with wonderful gardens. I will show some of the flowers in the next few posts
