Garden of Europe
The Garden of Europe is a great place for a walk with the visitors.
These trees behind the holocaust memorial have grown big and tall and now completely enclose the garden. There is also a new walkway behind these trees which the boys loved to explore.
One of the joys of visiting here is the chance to see birds and other wildlife. Birdsong is a constant soundtrack accompanying your every step.
The boys were fascinated by the oldest plant in the garden.
Bust of Schiller.
What has happened to this tree in the park? It is completely bare.
That was then; this is now

As se commemorate the beginning of WW1 let us never forget that those who fail to learn the lessons of history are destined to repeat them.
They went with songs to the battle, they were
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and
They were staunch to the end against odds
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left
Age shall not weary them, nor the years
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
They mingle not with their laughing comrades
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England’s foam.
But where our desires are and our hopes
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from
To the innermost heart of their own land they
As the stars are known to the Night;
As the stars that shall be bright when we are
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain;
As the stars that are starry in the time of our
To the end, to the end, they remain.
