Thru my Looking Glass @ Hampton Court Palace

Great news!
My daughter, Miss Christine flew in this morning
and is now safely tucked away in the comfort of home.
Happy Mom. :)

Blogging seems to be getting more and more challenging these days.
I am sure you can appreciate the feeling.

I felt like the White Rabbit from the Alice in Wonderland story book last week.
I did a mad dash thru the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, something one should never do.
Taking photos and checking my clock as I went is what I saw thru my Looking Glass.

A wonderful painting ensconced in a flower garden.

A magical mystery tour filled with enchantment....

Thru my looking glass, a secret spot...

 and a crowd enjoying a garden party.

I spotted the Queen of Hearts, 

with a beautiful face...

and a working garden,
viewed thru a raindrop on my lens.

A whimsical sunken garden with a chess covered vertical wall,

a thoughtful garden window,

an inspiring zen garden...

 and a sign pointing the way home...

to Alice's tea party. ;)

 Where life got curiouser and curiouser,
more tea please!
