Update HGimages 2010 #2

In April 2008 I started a group called Historical Gardens on photo-sharing site flickr, in which photos of both famous and obscure historical gardens are collected by photographers around the world. The group has been growing continuously over time and now spans all continents and many countries.
The weekly updates I wanted to do earlier were a ridiculous plan, so I now have a four week update -which results in a ridiculously huge list. I’ll find some kind of optimum one day ;-)
