Continuing my perambulation of Regent’s Park, with no particular destination in mind, since I hadn’t looked anything up and had no idea what there was, just that it was a park and I wanted to go for a walk… and there’d already been the carvings, and people playing cricket, and football (soccer) and softball (?!) and a sign to look out for hedgehogs, although (sadly) I never did actually see a hedgehog but then all of a sudden ROSES! and roses, and roses of all shapes and colors, WOW! I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many in one place. Turns out Queen Mary’s Garden is the largest planting of roses in London, with approximately 12,000 roses. Well that would explain the “this is LOTS of roses” feeling!
