Walking through St. James’s Park after the rain, I was admiring the way the droplets of water clung to leaves and petals. I took some photos, of course.
Armed with our cameras and M&S carry bags full of bread, olives, cheese, fruit, chocolate and drinks, D and I sat on the cool grass in Holland Park after work to play catch up in our busy lives. A beautiful Spring night and flowers in full bloom. Holland Park has to be one of the most serene escapes from central London, sprawling (though not as much as Hyde Park and certainly nowhere near as large as Hampstead Heath or Richmond Park), yet properly maintained and beautiful. Quite often in the summertime people are outside among the flowers having wedding photos taken. Even this night, we were certainly not alone in photo-taking or picnicing. Here’s a few for the atmosphere:
Autumn in Ravencourt Park, W6.
“It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life.” ~P.D. James
