The Crown In St James’s Park

The Queen decided to remove her crown from the “Tower of London” and place it in St James’s Park. I took a photo of it. 🙂



About Don

My name is Don Scrooby and I live in the United Kingdom. I have a deep love for nature and open spaces and one of my great loves in life is sketching, particularly in pen and water colour and occasionally in pencil. I’m quite new at the art and I sketch mainly from photographs I’ve taken, but also enjoy outdoor sketching. My sketchbooks, although no great shakes, are important to me and I decided to create my blog in order to share some of their contents with those who may be interested.

      Thanks Nancy. I looked at it very carefully and was absolutely struck by the work done. This was not at its best. The flowers had already died so you can imagine what it looked like when they were in full bloom.

    That is some crown! I imagine it is like all others, hard to wear. 🙂

    Is that what they mean by “hedge funds”?

    That was well done! Far prefer the green variety to the stolen jewels in the other crown.


  6. She’s everywhere, isn’t she? I like the Tower version though I recognize peak blooming has passed.
