Anniversary of Anne Boleyn's execution
The 19th of May is the anniversary of the execution of Anne Boleyn, and this year I managed to make my way to the Tower of London for the date. I visited the chapel of St Peter ad Vincula on 2 of the Beefeater tours, and then when it was opened to the public after 4.30pm. I saw the famous basket of roses that arrives every year - no-one knows who from. Other people had also brought flowers to lay on Anne's grave. The flowers increased as the day went on. I enjoyed meeting some of Anne's 'fans', and although it's not allowed, I'm afarid I did sneak a quick photo. Sorry!
