Italian Reflections in London

Italian Water Gardens in Kensington Gardens,  London,  June 2017

These 150-year-old ornamental water gardens  greet you as you enter Kensington Gardens from Lancaster Gate.  They are believed to have been created as a gift from Prince Albert to his beloved Queen Victoria.  They sit at the head of what is officially known as the Long Water, a river that turns into the Serpentine when it crosses the border into Hyde Park.

    1. As far as I understand, the water for the fountains comes from a borehole, and it flows into the Long Water.
      It was so hot today, I would have loved to have a big lake to jump into!
