'OH, WHO CAN EVER BE TIRED OF BATH?'......... I think I now the location of this park, we walked around it. What a wonderful tribute of the 200 year2 Jane Austen.
Love this scene with the child and dad(?)
Chris: This has been erected in the PARADE GARDENS to celebrate the 200th anniversary of her death Astrid

Bloomim' 'eck Tiff, will they never let up on the J.A. Stuff. It's like here. Every town think they own Mozart.
Chris: Mozart! He lived in my next door neighbour's potting shed Chad. I swear it.

Least that wot he told me..
I sure hope Jane knows how much she is celebrated there!
Chris: It is an interesting train of thought Ginnie to wonder if Jane Austen had in her lifetime even the slightest inkling of how famous her memory would be in centuries to come?

I suspect not, in fact I think she would be amazed

Oh wonderful, and I know where we are - in the Parade Gardens of Bath!

I prefer Michael Connelly

Oh now that is very pretty! I can remember the metalwork in place during my last visit. I like the text made out of the flowery things.
Chris: Her memory lives on, and on..
Horticultural triumph, a lot of work to create this masterpiece
Chris: They go to great lengths here in Bath to create this sort of horticultural confection Martin

It may smell good, but I don't think her bed will be comfortable.
Chris: Not really; I meant flower bed..

It is clever and lovely, Chris.
Chris: And so are you
A very fine celebratory flower bed isn't it. The couple, top left, look to be in a questionable position, I might have cloned them out.
Chris: You are absolutely right Brian
They put a feather in her cap.
Chris: Yes they did!
The Austen industry never sleeps smile
Chris: In Bath it's rampant Tom..
