What a beautiful garden! We are headed to London this summer…looks like this would be an nice place to take a break from the frenzy of touring.

Lucia, thanks for stopping by. You will have to visit Kyoto Garden in Holland Park, Kensington. Great shopping in the area too!

My favorite one is the fourth photo. I’m not sure if I’d put the sign as the first photo, because although it tells me what I’m looking at, it isn’t the most interesting picture.

Thanks Heather, I think i’ll switch the order around – I like that one too!

Man, the reflections ARE awesome, but I’m with Heather – that fourth photo makes my day (I always want to take photos looking up into the trees).

Thanks Linda, it made my day too – blue sky is a rare thing in London :)

Been in London a million times, even in Holland Park – and never heard of this garden! Lovely photos.

Some lovely photos you took Rebecca! thank you. What a wonderful month to see the gardens. September is now kicking in and the gardens is going through it’s forever changing cycle of colours/growth etc which is another favorite time of mine as the autumn starts to kick in. The Moorhen chicks have matured well and the crowds of people are slowly dwindling…A beautiful time to come soak up some peace and tranquility. Love the last photo and FYI the large lantern has now been restored to it’s former glory (It got vandalized by a couple of young yobs last year…).
Glad you enjoyed the gardens. Peace and love. Marc (Gardener in charge of Kyoto gardens)
