Roses for Richard III

Each day of her stay in Leicester during Richard III’s reinterment week, Jasmine took a photo of the tributes at the James Butler statue. By the end of the week it was swamped in white roses.

    Thanks so much for the photos and the clip.

    Sort of O.T.: In honor of Richard’s reinterment, a theatre group here in Berkeley (California) staged a modern-dress, multi-racial version of the play. Quite silly–Richard seduces Anne around and on his corner-office desk and takes a selfie in the process–but Elizabeth Woodville was well acted.
