Queen For A Day: Sudeley Castle

Sudeley Castle
The Queens Garden

I followed Hillary Clinton's campaign eagerly.  I wanted her to be President of the United States.  I wanted a woman to be President.  I realized walking through the Queens Garden at Sudeley Castle that British woman feel quite differently about women in politics.  They have had women in power for hundreds of years.
The sign at the entrance to the Queens Gardens says that:
Katherine Parr
Elizabeth I
Lady Jane Grey
enjoyed many pleasurable hours in the garden.
and so did I.  It was a little like being Queen For A Day.
