by James Matthew Barrie
The unhappy Hook was as impotent as he was damp,
and he fell forward like a cut flower.
Today is the anniversary of the death of the author of Peter Pan, James Matthew Barrie.
Barrie was inspired by Kensington Gardens.
In 1912, he commissioned Sir George Frampton to build the statue of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. It's been a favorite of visitors to the park ever since.
Gardens and flowers were a tremendous source of inspiration from Barrie.
