On this dark, rainy day, I thought we would visit Warwick Castle. On a Spring day, sunny and warm, unlike this one today in Iowa, it was a special experience spending most of the day going through the different parts of the castle. The famous Madame Tussaud's mannequins occupy several rooms depicting scenes from that era. The grounds were beautiful, too, with Peacock strutting atop the trimmed hedges. By clicking on the picture you should be able to enlarge it. Then you can see in the back of the picture that the some of the hedge is trimmed to look like the peacocks.
