Snob Screens

Barry and I decided to check out the historic Prince Alfred Pub that is right near us in Little Venice. It was built in 1863, has hand painted walls and ceilings.

Details, details, details

It has the original “snob screens” installed to keep the men, women, and classes apart. Apparently “The Formosa” which is . . . → Read More: Snob Screens

The Chelsea Flower Show… WOW!

Despite being caught (soaked!) in one of the few downpours of the entire time I have lived here, I had a fantastic time at the annual Chelsea Flower Show. This is a big event and always sells out. I went in the morning to be there when it opened at 8 am with 2 of . . . → Read More: The Chelsea Flower Show… WOW!

Henley Country Walk… 10.3 Miles!

As a committed non-exerciser, I have to admit I was a little nervous about this English countryside walk. The 10.3 miles doesn’t include getting to the beginning of the walk and back home… so buses, train stations, etc. I was worried that I would be miserable, not that I couldn’t do it!

More Regents Park Garden

Just have to show a few of my favorite roses this morning in the Queen’s Rose Garden, but first… Proof that I went “jogging”.

Aren't they cute? This is not proof of anything other than I had a camera while they ran!

So, first I went into the reproduction of the Regents Period Garden…

Come With Me to the Secret Garden

Linda, my lovely British neighbor, finally convinced me to go running with her in Regents Park with Raffi, her dog, this morning. The deal was that I would go over there with them, and then go through the Rose Garden (so I wouldn’t be pressured to run). I only jogged a little bit. Gotta take . . . → Read More: Come With Me to the Secret Garden
