Like the river my Lord’s favour has defected eastward
My fear of losing his love is now replaced by sorrow
No more do I strum for him the strains of ‘Flowers Fall’
Here in the Palace’s west only the cold wind blows

In response to Derrick Knight‘s post I dug up some photos I sent to friends by email while I was in London for a month in August/September 2013. All my photos are locked up in an old computer and these are all that I can find of those days.
I was staying in an apartment on Dukes Road WC1.
It was a hot summer and children were jumping into the pond at the Victoria and Albert:
Fossils of sea animals and birds’ eggs at the Natural History Museum next door to V&A
I took day trips with London Walks to Stonehenge, the Cotswold and Salisbury:
Here I was in Bath:
Back in London:
All these photos were taken with the Sony Cyber-shot, a little point-and-shoot job. It has been replaced by the iPhone.
I am attracted to white flowers. I don’t get full sun anywhere on my garden and white stands out so well in the shade of my jacaranda tree. Click any image to see a slideshow of the full gallery of photographs.
