London Flora

Covent Garden
Covent Garden
I was back in London, walking around on a muggy day, a little bit nervous as I was on my own but lifted on my own little love cloud as I looked around. I love London. My heart beats faster at just the word. L-O-N-D-O-N. Say it slowly and maybe my stay can be extended. And when I see all the little green spaces around the city, I might have even squealed.....

From the canal to grand street, I walked and took it all in. Wondering who lives behind the pretty door, who sits there watching the world with a glass of wine, do the people sat on the grass, laughing there in the park live near or are they day-tripping like me too.....

The big smoke! I still get as excited going into London as I did as a teenager, such is the way I suppose for so many of us non-Londoners. I am loving these photos, I almost feel as if I have been for a walk with you.
I see the cow I see the cow! Well I do now, at first I was looking in the photo underneath - like a numpty!
Thanks for sharing some Summer from the city x

You've reminded me how beautiful London can be in the summer. I was always a London girl but since turning into a country nature lover I've forgotten the nature gems and beauties you can see all over the city. Love this.

What a lovely post about the side of London we seldom see. I love your pictures and your view of London! Well done for being brave, I couldn't walk around London now on my own.

I also love wandering around London - it's a real treat if I am there and have time to spare to just potter round and look at things

I love it when I have time to petter around, most of the time I am whizzing through London on a deadline!
