Dulwich was known to exist as a hamlet in 967AD and the word Dulwich in old English literally means "where dill grows." In the later Victorian era 'American Gardens' were becoming popular so an "American Garden' was designed in 1887 and opened to the public in 1890. Queen Mary enjoyed her visits here to see the Rhododendrons and Azaleas; she in fact made an annual visit every year in May! Although a much loved park by Queen Mary, it is not a Royal Park like our eight Royal Parks in and around London.

The horse and pony trail just adds to the beauty of it all. The Drakes appears to have a tear on his face. such marvelous pictures. thank you, will be glad to see the next article.|

|Dear Charleen, yes the Drake does look like he has a tear! But they are always fighting over females anyway so that is nothing new!|
Thank you for your comments.
