Loveliest of Trees

Last night I had dinner with friends in Denmark Hill.   On the way, Sophocles Bakery tempted me in with some amazing baklava.  On the way back, a fox ran across my path.

Today the sun is bright and the sky is clear.  I have been walking out in Hampstead.  There’s cherry:

On Thursday, I swam 2.25 kms swum in Swiss Cottage.  Today, I swam 3kms.

      Hi there!

      I like your pictures from yesterday, by the way. Fingers crossed the weather will be as good!

    You will be able to cram lots in over 40 hours, I’ll keep my fingers cross for good weather for you. Lots ore reviews will go up in next couple of weeks, I’ve been eating (for Scotland !) but not had time to post !!

    […] up to Hampstead I saw forsythia, cherry, magnolia and camellia all flowering at once.  Compared to last year, incidentally, I’d guess spring is about a couple of weeks behind.  Perhaps that’s why […]
