Princess Diana Memorial, Hyde Park, London

Not much on plants, but it’s a cool water feature. Water enters at its highest point and travels down steps, rocks gently, picks up momentum with jets, babbles a bit, air bubbles are introduced, goes over waterfalls, swirls, slides under bridges, flows over carved stone, sluices through channels wide and narrow. Ends in a small reflecting pool. Tumultuous & serene, rocky & elegant, free-flowing & constricted, reserved & splashy. A tasteful and subtle reminder.

Favorite thing: It stands out from all the other memorials, considering how ornate and over -the-top memorials in England are. Hard to photograph in total though.

This is a “gently used” post from my old blog for in another blog software originally posted in December 2007. Slowly I’m posting past posts here. Sorry if you read this before.

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.
