    In Hyde Park, those trees have eyes, faces, and much more…

    It was one of those days when I went to see a tree up close and personal and there it was, looking at me, not just looking at me, starring at me, the gall of it all. I looked closer and it was a tree, not to sound paranoid but I suddenly started thinking that may be, just maybe there would be other trees looking at me so I began to look for them, I painstakingly went to most of the trees in Kensington Gardens (Hyde Park for most) and began to realise that many of these trees are double agents and they are constantly observing. On closer examination, turns out they are harmless, they wave, they laugh, they smile, they show their wit. All in good fun, all in the friendliness that I have come to discover at Hyde Park.

    You know? Ever since I started walking across this wonderful park, I became start stuck at the sheer beauty and majesty of this place and slowly became friends with many of its rightful inhabitants starting with the ducks, then the swans and most recently, the really old guys, the real thing. The trees, you may recall that in another article, I talk about a set of 5 trees, the Fab 5 (article titled “My best insider’s tip for London: The Fab 5” see link below) and soon other trees started calling me and as I got closer and tried to discover something in them, something that would make them special, I realised that if you look hard enough and with a bit of imagination you will find unexpected beauty and in some cases will be rewarded with expressions of joy, well sort of.

    You see, little did I know when I said in the Fab 5 article that if you wave at them, they would wave back at you. Know why? Because they actually do, so next time you go to Hyde Park, look closer, go beyond the obvious and you will find their faces, their traits, and their own particularities. In other words, you will find their uniqueness.
