Pretty As A Picture

September 16, 2011

The Brit’s really do know how to make beautiful gardens and I’ve really enjoyed photographing the flowers that are in bloom right now at the tail end of the summer. After we trekked to Trafalga Square we walked under the 3 arches that lead up to Buckingham Palace but we took a left turn and walked through the stunning parklands instead and walked the longer way around and I’m so glad we did. The parklands were really beautiful with lovely duck ponds and beautifully tended gardens and we even met a few squirrels along the way as well. That was a real treat because squirrels are not something you see in Oz.

I had such a great time snapping all these stunning flowers, I could have stayed there all day, but in the next blog, I’ll show you some photos of the hanging baskets and flower boxes that brighten up so many of the buildings and houses here. In fact, the pubs are the ones who really go for the flower baskets in a huge way. But that’s for next time.

  1. WOW, the sights and views are quite spectacular hey!

    Would love to be there with you both right now. Maybe next time you guys go I’ll tag along.

    • We’d love for you to be with us…the images are lovely but seeing it first hand is something else again. Really missing you both…can’t wait to see you soon.

    • The meetings have just begun and they’ve begun really well. We’ve heard from a futurist who has given us a glimpse of what the future will probably look like technologically…which in many ways is good and in many ways is terrifying and tonight we’ve been treated to hearing the stories of what God is doing in media through UCB and all it’s international affiliates and it’s been breathtaking. :-) Thanks for all your prayers.
