Watch out Hampton Court, here we come!

Braving the elements in her adorable rain coat and umbrella, Mel gets ready to enter Hampton Court Palace.
Pretending to be the Queen, It think we could get used to this!

Love the mushroom trees!!!
Sundials don't need much sun to work, as you can see in this picture. It looks like it's 1 pm.
The flowers were all out and put on a stunning show despite the torrents of rain,  "April showers brings may flowers."

  Melody and I had a fantastic tour around Hampton Court Palace on this rainy day! We managed to see all sorts of things, the medieval kitchens, an impromptu performance of the "royal painter" and his subject, Henry VIII roaming the halls, plus the stunning gardens in full bloom. We even managed to get stuck outside in a downpour, and then have the fire alarm go off on us during lunch, and we made it to the center of a maze. It really was a totally brilliant day!
