A trip sown the Thames and a walk around my garden in spring


A few weeks ago we took a river trip along the Thames, on a boatLondon boat trip 129 straightenedirfanview it is called  the Clipper Commuter Service, we boarded at the 02 and traveled towards Waterloo, passing some very famous landmarks London boat trip 233 Curves and sharpened

A rather dull day so the pictures are not very colourful but you get the idea of famous landmarks!   We disembarked at Waterloo Pier and walked over the foot bridge to get a better view of the London Eye.


Returning to the South Bank we were stopped by a film crew and asked our opinion of the London Mayor Ken Livingstone, well I had plenty to say but when they discovered that we did not live in London and could not vote they did not want to know!   So there goes my 15 seconds of fame!

Walking towards The Festival Hall we encountered the Street Entertainers, London boat trip 194they are mime artists and not suppose to register emotion, but just look at this guys face!   Caption competition for what I have just said to him!!

Enough of this frivolity! after this we went to the Science Museum and walked our feet off.

But now I am going to take you for a little walk around my garden in Spring

When my daughter moved house 5 years ago and was rearranging her garden, these beautiful hellebores were ‘in the wrong place’ well I had just the right place for them and they are now flourishing in my Woodland Garden.

 This is a deeper version they seem to have multiplied in various colours, oh yes my daughter has moved again and has a new garden to fill up, guess what she wants me to give her!!   Well there are plenty to go around.Garden March 031

Well a spring time walk would not be complete with out the shimmering dancing daffodil.

Watch this space I have to take lots of photos for my assessment, and I am beginning to find out what all the buttons are for, hope you enjoyed the walk around London and the Essex Garden

    Looks like you had a fun trip. And you can have many more now that you’re retired. As for a caption for the pic of you and the English cowboy,  here goes: "Watch the lasso, dude. I ain’t no heifer."  Yeah, I know. It’s all that came to me.
