I went for a run this morning through Hyde Park and took a detour to visit the gardens of Kensington Palace. I may have spent more time looking at plants than I spent actually running…
|My favorite, the sunken garden.|
|Kensington Palace. Not super impressive from the outside.|
|The Italian Fountains. Built by Prince Albert for Queen Victoria.|
|I love these massive banks of flowers.|
|The planting strikes me as so English — obviously highly planned, but in a way that gives the
impression of nature (so different from the uber-formality of the French style).
