Islington, London in the summer & winter. If you ever want to visit London that makes you feel like your NOT in London then I suggest you go to this place....
This is a small footbridge in New River Walk and it is so peaceful and the wildlife in there is brilliant. When you walk through from begining to end there are benches amoung large shrubs, an old hut that has been there for many years, all kinds of tree's and some of them spread their branches right across the river. There are bird's of all types and let me tell you, when it's springtime the baby birds are so cute that you just have to give them your sandwich. There is a various planned rockery with shrubs and if you like the colour of green, then it's the place to be. It is so peaceful, so quiet and you could just sit for hours. It's not far from Essex Road where there is a good bakery (not expensive) and you can grab your cake and coffee and just enjoy it sitting on the bench.
The next picture was taken a few days ago near one of the entrances and it look's cold. But, I think it would look good as a picture or poster because it's SNOW. It's so calm and I just feel like I want to go there right now. The tree's are gorgeous and you just got to touch them, especially the Swamp Red Wood. It stand's so tall and the colour of its big trunk is a beautiful red. Here are a few photo's of my walk to work on Monday...I love taking photo's when the weather changes....
What else have I been doing, well I finished the Crochet Granny Blanket and have just got to put a name tag on it. I have started another design of my own, it's a random kind of blanket because I am just trying out different things and if I don't like the stitch, I unpick it. So far, its not too bad and the creative thought's haven't stumped me yet...here is a taster of what it looks like so far...
I'am off to chill for a while. Will put another post up on the blog next weekend. Have a good week and by the way, did you notice it's still light at 4pm, so excited that Spring is on it's way. I hate getting up in the dark and leaving work in the dark. Take care...
