The Parks, London

I didn't get to spend as much time as I would have like to in the parks of London, but I did get to stop in St. James park, Green Park and Hyde Park.

I posted St. James's Park pictures here, so now I'll show you some shots of Green Park.
So, yes, Green Park is very green! I read that there were no flowers in Green Park, unlike St. James's that is overabundant with flowers, because the Lepers were buried there from when there used to be a hospital on the site of St. James's Palace. Don't know if they just don't plant flowers because of this or they just don't grow, but it sounded very interesting!

My Next post will have my pictures from Hyde Park - which was beautiful!!

I have a beautiful picture taken from St. James park of Buckingham Palace. I liked it so much, it sits in a frame in my library.
