A good time to visit with so many flowers in full bloom.
A dome any Singaporean would recognise, although this one is intended to keep plants warm, where as in Sing it is meant to keep plants cool.
An odd find, trees roots from Ghana,

T'is a lovable place. After a stop off in Llandeilo for a special hot chocolate on the way home to celebrate Gek's birthday, Swi left the next day for the second part of her hols, Amsterdam. Some contrast.
The first Tudor king of England and Wales was born here, Henry the VII. Then came Henry the VIII, daughter Mary and finally Elizabeth before the Scottish Stuarts were invited to take over the 'crown'. no Englishman had the right credentials for the job, apparently.
St Catherine's island, with a more modern fort atop it, part of the the UK defensies built in the 1860's against a perceived threat from France's Neapolitan. The fort is currently 'closed to the public' and faces an uncertain future, apparently, whatever that means.

Learned to drive in one. If you are wondering what the panda is doing sitting in front of the Morris, it is a reference to the nick name these cars were given in the 1960s. Why panda?

Wish I had had one,
Had one, but never drove one. Not a Morgan anywhere to be seen.
