Palace Gardens

Listen to Kay ...
In a glorious Summer, Palace gardens are bejewelled with green, mauve, and rose, where we find you immaculate, spectacular, and bountifully beautiful, rich in magic and life.
Oh, how you always welcome, entice and enchant.
Royalty, rivers, and the bumble bees are gifts wrapped in ribbons of black and gold. Follow guides and maps for lanes & rivers, like tracing your finger over a tapestry of scenic blue & green threads.
We see a bee's translucent wings still so still when perched upon a flower.
Yes, visitors relax nearby, and tourists chattered on phones, asking where their friends had travelled to other parts of the world when absent from today's trips and sights with them. They say, 'Where in the world are you?'
I identify the names of flowers, listing them on notebook pages. There are Rosemary flowers with their pollinating bees just before the rose gardens appear in front to tell me fairytales. I find my friend there.
