Hampton Court Palace

Saturday 2nd June
It's Mamie Ese Birthday today. She's 79, but she still looks and lives like a 60-something. She's an awesome grandma and I love her very much. It's also a special day for Tweetey who celebrates her first Wedding Anniversary. And it's a special day here because the sun is out again after a fortnight of rain and cold.
We took the boat down the river Thames to Hampton Court, it's a 35 minutes boat ride on the lovely river and we went past some gorgeous, modern, large, or quaint houses on both sides of the river, with their boats moored by their gardens, dreaming of one day being able to afford one of these.
Hampton Court is famous for its palace and gardens. Next month starts the Hampton Court Flower Show, I might go and check it out. Kitem you're welcome to come over a few days to join me. We started strolling by the rose garden and went into the maze, the maze was not as much fun as the ne in Blenheim palace but it was fun enough.
I likes how the trees at the back of the palace are groomed. Here Uncle and Auntie in front of the bell-shaped forest.
Alex and his parents in front of the palace.
Me under the vineyard and in front of some private garden of the palace we could not access.

Thank you for remembering me on Saturday. It was good day. I made a chocolate cake for our anniversary and Bri's b-day. She got a bike, an outfit, and a couple of carebears. She is into Care Bears. I will post her party later today.
