We’ve been nursing a couple of heavy colds over the last few days, so strenuous activity has been somewhat curtailed - although we have briefly contributed to the capital’s leisure economy! We’ve done a few walks and tried to keep our fitness levels up a bit – here are some shots of the many simple things around London that can lift our senses if we did but notice them.
The glorious tiled ticket booths in Edgware Road tube station.
The extraordinary historical detail that surrounds us around every corner.
Spring has sprung in Hyde Park.
The fat and friendly park inhabitants.
A Henry Moore sculpture and, in the far distance, Kensington Palace.
The winter tendrils of garrya elliptica.
The Palace of Westminster - distant across the Serpentine.
Our first Snowdrop sighting this year.
The lovely dell at the end of the Serpentine.
The McLaren showroom in Knightsbridge – displaying James’ next birthday present (in his dreams!).
…… and lastly – nestling in the middle of Kensington High Street – and architectural treat.
