Amy encourages us this week to share the beauty of the gardens. So I’ll take a tour of some of those I’ve visited.
Kensington Gardens inspired the author, J.M. Barrie, to begin the story of Peter Pan. In fact, the statue is located at the exact point where Peter appears in the first version, and it was placed in that place by the author himself in secret one night – since he was denied the necessary permission to place the statue there. He planned everything meticulously, as he also published an article in The Times that day, telling the children that Kensington Gardens was expecting a surprise… And so, on May 1, 1912, «magically» appeared the statue of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens.
