Evening in Greenwich Park

Evening in Greenwich Park is a good time to enjoy the softer light and the end of the day.

Looking for inspiration in Greenwich Park

It has been a chilly, damp, grey day in London, one of those days when you don’t really want to do anything but know you ought to take some exercice. So I took myself to Greenwich Park to compare progress with the London Garden.

Magnolias in Greenwich Park

It is a long time since I posted here! In the inbetween monthsI have been to France, undertaken house renovation, and prepared for a photography exhibition which is just two weeks away now. I have been iimmersed in the Breton Church Closes and will be returning to Brittany soon to continue with the project.

I look forward to seeing this rose every year. Just for a few weeks I enjoy the whirl of pink petals and it is a special joy to visit Greenwich Park and head for the rose garden.

Pink Paeonies – The Essence of Summer

The Paeony Borders in Greenwich Park seem rather smaller and more restrained this year, but perhaps I am imagining it. Right now the paeonies are displaying themselves completely unrestrainedly, in pink, magenta, and white, and somehow managing to survive all the rain.

Last Magnolias in Greenwich Park

The magnolias are mainly over for the year – glorious, sculptural, waxy, enticing – just beautiful.

Cherry Blossom in Greenwich Park

What a strange spring it is – in Greenwich Park there are daffodils and tulips – and cherry blossom.
