Tim Dowling: we’re off to sunny Spain, but I’ve got the airport blues

Our old people’s travel cards do not open the barriers at Gatwick airport train station. My wife flashes me an I-told-you-so look, because she told me so, shortly after we left the house. Things have not started well, and we’re still a long way from Spain. “Zones one through six only,” the guard says, in a weary, patronising sing-song. This, I realise, is what being old is like: they give you free stuff, and then snatch it away so they can treat...

What it’s really like to live at Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace, built in 1703 and designated a royal residence in 1761, is now well-known as the official residence of the late Queen Elizabeth II, but it's also an official state building. The famed royal grounds operate in both private and public spheres, containing both rooms designated for official purposes—the ones which we see—and private areas and apartments, which stay guarded from public view. With its 829,000 square feet and 775 rooms (including 19 state rooms, 52 royal and guest bedrooms, 92 offices, 78 bathrooms, and 188 staff bedrooms), the palace certainly has space for all the royals to live, but it's not as enticing as it might seem. While there are some definite perks to living in the palace, there are also a surprising number of challenges and inconveniences. Click through to find out what life at Buckingham Palace is really like.

It's Official: We Found the 40 Prettiest Flowers in the World

How many of these breathtaking beauties do you recognize? As is often the case with beautiful things, we've given flowers meaning—so much so that even looking at one can make you feel more alive. A plain red rose has become a romantic expression of love and sunny daffodils represent the rebirth of the planet every spring. Of course, because they're plants, we also use them in more practical ways: Silky flower petals have been crushed and distilled into essential oils and perfumes for centuries, and we've figured out how to eat some of them and make tea with select leaves, stalks, and blooms. But to put it simply, the joy of admiring a gorgeous, colorful flower is unmatched. (Though we should note that some are best admired from afar because of toxicity.) Not to mention, no two flowers are exactly the same. Some rise out of the water to bloom while others sprout vines that go where they want…permanently decorating the side of your house. Even low bushes can produce incredible blossoms, like giant peonies, and if you've ever sat under a cherry blossom tree with a cool breeze blowing tiny petals around you, you know how magnificent flowering trees can be. A person who loves flowers is called an "anthophile," and if this describes you, you'll probably recognize most—if not all—of the flowers below. Rare or common, bright or soft, simple or complex, these beautiful flowers from around the world are certainly sights to behold.
