This time the Italian Water Gardens were completely covered by thick snow but the fountains were still working! It was an amazing to see! The garden looked really pretty in her new white dress, which I have never seen before.

London has some amazing parks and Kensington Gardens is one of them. Just inside the garden (opposite Lancaster Gate) is the lovely area, Italian Gardens. Very nice area and good to take half an hour of relaxation in nice surroundings. Sit back, relax, enjoy!
