On these record-breaking scorching summer days in Europe whilst wildfires run amok and people seek the shade, the 350 acres of Hyde Park in London offered just such a place of escape and a cool place to breathe.
The subway walls of leafy murals signals the route to Hyde Park
Hi-vis stands out in the shadows
Often in summer, drinking from the spring, I sensed in its cool breath and in its voice
A living form, darker than any shade And without feature, passionate, yet chill ~Edgar Bowers ~ Autumn Shade
Title from Andrew Marvell’s “The Garden” for this megahot Monochrome Monday where nothing is as cool as grey shades!
