This sketch was done looking towards the Palace from the Hyde Park Corner end. The garden was a big surprise - it was much more informal than I had imagined and quite a lot of undulations. It was also lovely sunny weather which was a marvellous change from what we have been getting all over the UK.

And the food? Pretty good - nice cucumber and mint sandwiches, tea or iced coffee, and very tasty little cakes. Altogether very civilized - nay, Regal, and it was a privilege to be invited. A day to remember.
