The "royals" do know how to play, don't they? This playground reminds me a lot of Epcot at Disney World in Orlando. At Disney they trim the bushes and shrubbery into various shapes, most often into the shapes of Disney characters. Very cool.

And empty of people - except you. I suppose it was once a private reserve. The box hedges are fascinating - where does one learn to design these things?

Jack said...

Marvelous. Absolutely marvelous.
