This post is for Haiku heights prompt word ‘Eccentric’
Everything about Warwick Castle was eccentric when we visited at the weekend. The theme was ‘Horrible Histories’ so there were knights in armour and princesses, dragons and wizards in the towers as well as scarily lifelike waxwork models of kings, queens and nobility.
But the most eccentric things were the peacocks which seemed intent on stealing the show with their courtship and flying displays. I have never seen a peacock perch so high in a tree before!
He shows no restraint
With his flamboyant display

Oh thank you x
I loved touring this castle. It still stands out in my mind and I did it about 30 years ago!!!
So glad it brought back memories. It has really improved for visitors although the exterior is just as beautiful as ever.
