I wonder if there are parks in countries – other than those once colonised by England that have botanic gardens named for a queen? I’m thinking probably not but maybe to marka visit from her royal highness, be it either Victoria or Elizabeth. Mind you I’m not sure if world travel was a thing in Victoria’s time unless you were an explorer or pirate.
Australia has its share of beautiful gardens names for the reigning monarch and I’ve found a few we have visited as we’ve been on the this past year.
Day Seventeen of the 2019 A-Z Challenge during the month of April. The challenge is to post six days a week, Sunday respite from writing or catching up with other participants and their posts. Each of the twenty-six days represents a letter of the alphabet and while each post stands alone they form part of a loose theme reflecting our retirement trip around Australia: Our Big Fat Aussie Road Trip.

The USA doesn’t have a monarchy legacy. A few good presidenrs’s names are for cities and streets. I plan to avoid anything named after this POTUS.
