Second Sunday in May
is Mother Day in Australia.
Not sure about north of the equator.
MGW has had an enjoyable
Mother’s Day weekend.
Hope all other Mother had likewise.
In October 2016 it was a delight to take…
High Tea in the
Burj Al Arab’s
Sky View Bar
(200 metres above sea level, on the 27th floor)
watch the sun setting over
The Palm Jumeirah,
For our Thirtieth Wedding Anniversary
MGW booked us a hot air balloon ride
Last year another delightful surprise with
First Class Dining aboard
The Q Train
the Langham Hotel
All experiences could only be described
as delightful outings.
Back to St James Park in london.
I spent ages trying to eradicate two large clumps of this bush
from around the family home in my youth.
A pick and shovel were the tools of trade.
And new shoots would sprout while I was having a cup of tea.
I know it as Castor Oil Bush.
Not sure it that is anywhere near correct.
But to find it in the middle of London
and only a five-minute walk
from Buckingham Palace…..
And not far from the above monstrosity was
this beautiful Dahlia…and friend.
…then it dawned on me that I had photos of some roses
purchased for MGW on Wednesday for Valentine’s Day.
Hope everyone had a
Happy Valentine’s Day.
Getting rid of the rubbish.
