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.
