Statuary Rights

Now is the best time of year to be visiting historical gardens, as they’ll be in full bloom glory right now. If we manage to tear ourselves away from London Life and get to any, we’ll be sure to share them here, but in the meantime, we’re going to marvel at the historical grace and beauty the gardens of London and it’s surrounds are harboring quietly with an abundance of statues, grand and whimsical. There’s this gentle maiden among the flowers.
