Her Magesty, The Empress (1 of 2)

Her Magesty, The Empress (1 of 2). It's hard to believe that this time last year The Empress was covered in ivy. Apparently it was causing structural damage. What was amazing, is the scafolding over the summer that they put up had an empess cover, so it looked like this as soon as the scafolding went up. Impressive attention to detail..
