Good Morning my friends.
It has been a while
since I had enough time to sit and compose something
and visit all your blogs regularly.
Even though holidays I have been away and had visitors,
which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Finding new places in London to show my visitors I stumbled on some
yet fairly unknown places.
This is a new development, not even finished,
but the beautiful roof garden is finished.
It looks rather futuristic.
It features plants from East and West, meeting in the middle. A calm garden on top of a new railway station which is being build in Canary Wharf. It was calm and quiet in the middle of a concrete world. We had a lovely walk and enjoyed the amazing plants and trees there. Have a look for yourself!
There was a piano in the middle of the building so I couldn’t resist to do a fun bit on it which my aunt taught me.
It was great fun and a great place to visit!
More discoveries in the next post!
Keep smiling and enjoy the warmer weather!
Over Easter, I visited the Sky Garden, the highest garden in the UK. It is on the 35th floor of a building called ” the Walkie Talkie” in London.
Security is high , just like on an airport.
It was amazing to walk around this exotic garden!
It is free for the public but still needs to be booked and only open during working time, so I was happy to get tickets in the holidays.
Well worth going when you are in London!
It was wonderful to add this day to treasured memories.
Enjoy your day and see the beauty along the road!
I took some pictures and I wanted to share it with you
This is the Atheneaum Hotel in Piccadilly where I used to work 21 years ago. I stopped there when I got pregnant with my first son. It was already then a very prestigious hotel owned by Rank, the film company and Harrison Ford (I only saw his bill though) stayed so did other famous people.
It has one corner planted along the wall, and it looks fabulous. It has exotic plants and all different greenery, some with flowers even. They even have bird cages in between. This is an amazing idea in the middles of a busy city.
Across to Green Park you see theses beautiful flower baskets on the lamp posts…
…and this is the view outside my house!
A beautiful spider made his web there.
Take care and enjoy the time leading to Christmas!
RoSy loves frogs!
I got 2 new lodgers in my garden as I re-did my tiny little space behind the house.
My hammock fits in and I have some green… this is my little oasis!
Enjoy my garden with me…..
I love those frogs …. here with my little water feature!
We are all very happy out there!
… just need a bit more sunshine!
This is a shot at night with my lights!
Hope you are enjoying your Summer/ Winter, where ever you are !
