Kensington Gardens

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).
