One Fine Spring Day



Never mind that the changing weather is firing up my hay fever (aka allergic rhinitis) symptoms. The rare appearance of the sun dragged me to our local park which is just 5 minutes down the road. It was a glorious Sunday though a bit nippy. I took my HTC One and Cybershot to compare colours when shots are taken in bright sunlight. This is why you'll see that some photos are doubled in different frame sizes. I just have to take both with me all the time for the varying effects they offer. I'll buy a camera one day that does the job of both. In the meantime, come and take a walk with me in the park.












The ornamental pond with the fountain. Great for sitting down to listen to the sound of water, feeding the ducks, reading a book, getting some sun while having an ice cream or a glass of wine (I know, nowhere close to each other), or picnics with friends and loved ones.



The duck pond






My favourite seat in the park just right opposite the duck pond. The epitaph says 'Sit comfortably and remember those who died for you to sit in peace.'






The view from the opposite end of the ornamental pond.






Yes, you can feed them :)



In English folklore, a willow tree is believed to be capable of uprooting itself and stalking travellers. It makes me calm, peaceful, and rejuvenated instead.



Thus, the cafe in the vicinity is called Daisy's in the Park.



Shared ice cream with Mr Tittle-Tattles who finished off the bottom of the cone before I could even manage to take a photo.



On our walk back home, we passed by our village police station that's never really ever in use as we have the lowest crime rate in the whole of London. Have you seen one prettier than this?



What are you all up to this coming Easter weekend? Have a great one!

  2. That's a police station??? It looks like a house Hansel and Gretel would live it.:D And I'm sorry, but if I went for a walk in the park and I wanted to relax and unwind, I definitely wouldn't appreciate the 'sit comfortably and remember those who died for you to sit in peace' epitaph - that's just depressing to think about. 'Hey, sit down, relax and think about dead people.' Gee, thanks.:)

    But anyhow, I have to tell you something else too. I saw your email today - IN SPAM. Frigging Gmail. I've been meaning to come by and go through the posts I've missed anyway so seeing your email was an excellent nudge and here I am.:) Thank you for being so thoughtful and kind, dear! It definitely made me feel great to see that there are people out there who care. I'm fine and so is the little fur ball. I've actually just gotten the news - he'll have his surgery next Tuesday so everything will go back to normal after that and we're both over the moon.:) I hope all is well (or even better!!) in Tittle-Tattles world as well.;)

  3. I used to love the time when spring would come out in London... Where about is this park? It kind of reminds me of Richmond.

  5. Stunning, so imposing. You are lucky to live in such close proximity to something so beautiful and tranquil. I used to live near a lovely park, but then moved away so I have to drive to my local now, well actually I could walk to be fair if it's a really nice day and I wear appropriate shoes. The photos are of really great quality, I don't think you need to invest in a camera unless you really want to of course. You've inspired me to take a visit to my park this bank holiday weekend.
    Enjoy and have a good one! xx
