George's Garden

We were at a family birthday party in Highgate. After lunch I walked up hill with Mike and Jay (and, Jeez, is that a hill!) into the village to view the George Michael memorial garden- which occupies a green space- about the size of a regular suburban back yard- across from what used to be George's house. It was full of people- including some with brooms who were keeping it tidy- and there are tributes all round the fence and hanging from trees. I've never seen the like, at least not on such a scale.

The first picture has George's house in the background. Lots of famous people lived and live round here. Someone mentioned Jude Law. Someone else said Kate Moss or was it Kate Bush. Just down the road from George's house is one with two plaques on it- one for Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the other for J.B. Priestley.
