Early and Late Seasonal Colours








EARLY SUMMER IN FEBRUARY!

Our late February gave us some of the most bizarre Winter weather known on record.
So we joined the throngs of people and made our way to Regents Park where many
were wearing sandals and shorts, all pretending that it was Summer.
And while walking around the Park's Inner Circle near The Queen Mary's Garden
we heard the overpowering sound of running water. So naturally we followed the
sounds and found ourselves in the beautiful Japanese Water Garden, something I barely
knew even existed.
And yet I might have even visited this London hidden gem before, but I don't ever remember
seeing the waterfall. It looks even more impressive than the waterfall in the Kyoto Japanese
Garden in Holland Park. So hopefully I'll make another visit there during the Summer when
there will be more flora and vegetation on show.


More about The Japanese Water Garden Regents Park can be read on a blog called
SEQUINS AND CHERRY BLOSSOM.

THE ABOVE PICTURE AND GIF LAYOUT WAS A BIT TRICKY PUTTING TOGETHER.
AND IT'S PROBABLY ONLY CORRECTLY VIEWABLE ON A LAPTOP OR DESKTOP PC
AS WELL AS MOBILE PHONES ON THE CORRECT SETTINGS. 

GIFS ARE VIA MY OWN VIDEO OF THE WATERFALL.

  1. The Japanese are the best in making use of water not only in wonderful, eye catching gardens but across the entire landscape. Always enchanting. - Ian

  2. Ian, They certainly do, although not over keen on the extremely minimalist white stone gritted layouts.
    But I imagine this Water Garden will be much more colourful looking during this Summer. I was there on that freakishly
    warm February day recently.
