a few ramblings about things i love, people i admire, places i've been and things i've seen...but most important of all the many mattresses i find abandoned in and around London NW10 aka MATTRESSLAND

walking home from work through Regents Park the other day - came upon this hidden garden i'd never seen before. the garden of St John's Lodge was commissioned by the 3rd Marquess of Bute as a place of meditation - originally they were private but became public in 1928.
the Lodge itself was a private residence till 1918, it then became a hospital for First World War invalids and part of the University of London. it's privately owned again now by the Sultan of Brunei - thankfully we still get to experience this beautiful garden - what a gem.
