Have a Smiley Weekend!! 😉

Looking for Karl Marx in Highgate

It was great weather last sunday. Shamefully I was not planning anything particular to do in this lovely day so decided to go for a walk locally to my first visit to Highgate Cemetery. It is a famous cemetery that well-known people are buried.

I have several English friends who like to go cemeteries. They say it is calming and makes them feel peaceful. However, for me as a Japanese person a cemetery is somewhere spooky so I never be keen on visiting there. In old fashioned Japanese horror films ghosts always appear under willow trees near a cemetery. By thinking lots of bodies under the ground walking around there is also quite disterving to me. Anyway, that is why this became my first visit to this famous place. It was something new for me.

In order to reach the cemetery I went through Waterlow Park in Highgate.

The park has a wide grass area with some huge trees and some colour too.

It’s Raspberry Time!

Raspberry 8Yay, it is Raspberry time. It has been raining a lot almost every day here in London so I hardly water plants in my garden.

Whilst I was not even going out to my garden my Raspberries gradually started to appear. They were small and green at the beginning and became bigger …

Visiting RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016

Chelsea Mathematics

It was ‘RHS Chelsea Flower Show’ week last week. It is the biggest Flower show on earth and people from all over the world exhibit their design and display. I am not a member of RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) but love to go there whenever it is available. Although I was not expecting that would happen to me this year, I got a ticket accidentally so I went to view beautiful gardens.

Chelsea Shop BMy Chelsea viewing starts as soon as I come out from the tube station. The nearest station to the show is Sloan Square which leads to King’s Road with lots of clothes shops. During the Flower Show period many shops around there use flowers as a part of their window display. I always wander around there before walking towards the show.

The Walk in Trent Country Park

Walk with Siver birch

Very inviting bright path with dappled light


 
It was a very fine weather on Sunday so I went to walk in Trent Country Park in Enfield, England.

Pond

There were many people and most of them were with a family. I tried to take a quieter route by going through wilder area.

Blue sky

Blue sky, dark green of woods, yellowy green of grass and a speck of red colour of a deck chair somebody’s carrying … all these colours contrasting so harmoniously. Viewing this scene was the perfect way to finish my day trip.
