With considerable care and delicacy, the arborists of Hampton Court keep the trees in shape. The shape they use for some of the yew trees makes me smile.
All right, am I crazy, or does this big dark green tree look like one of the ghosts in Pac-Man? Deedle dee deedle dee!

Disclosure: I had this adventure on September 28, 2012 at Hampton Court Palace, just like Adventure #26. I was of sound mind at the time. I paid my own way. In fact, I bought an annual membership to Historic Royal Palaces so I could go back again and again. If you only want to see the gardens and not the palace, it costs less and some of it is free.
