green spaces, private and public, worth a visit
This is at the edge of a damp meadow near the plant centre. The large trees are wingnuts and the opulent lichen create an eerie atmosphere. It attaches itself not only to the trees, but also to the wooden benches. And to my hair probably, if I keep still long enough.
I had to wait outside the new US embassy in London for three hours and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The landscape design with a lake, waterfall, prairie planting and north-american trees makes the place feel like a genorous, open and very modern public garden. The latter adjectives haven’t been mentioned together with America for a while I guess.
