One for the Big D!

Daffodils and emerging azelias at Kew Gardens today. The next couple of months are when Kew really goes into full bloom. It is the loveliest and most serene park in London.

After this I’ll have to do a blog on Motorhead…

The vertical/portrait photos are a bit large at the moment as WordPress seems to have removed the ability to shrink them to 70 or 80%, which is what I usually do. It’s medium or large or full size only and the last two are the same. Maybe it wants me to change theme.

That sounds like a lot of effort!

About John S

I'm blogging about the things I love outside work: music, sport, culture, London, with some photos to illustrate aspects of our wonderful city. And anything else that I happen to think is worth writing about!

    Might have almost coincided yesterday, John. I left my car at a garage on Strawberry Vale at 9.00, then walked the Thames from Eel Pie Island to Hammersmith Bridge (ten miles, three and a half hours). So I was on the towpath at Kew in mid-morning, and the gardens were indeed looking fab.

    The river was a great place to be over the weekend, with 390 eights (an extraordinary number) competing for the Head of the River on Saturday. Alas, although the weather was beautiful, a combination of wind and an exceptionally high tide led to the race being abandoned – apparently several boats capsized. You had to feel sorry for the crews after all that training……

    The weather calmed down yesterday, which at least enabled them to run the Veterans’ race. A mere 150 crews this time!

      Managed a 5 mile walk from Ealing to Quins on Saturday. We got a taxi home though, after Arsenal v City in Twickenham pub. Shame about head of the river competition. Guess they need a high-ish tide to accommodate all the boats.
