I am blogging again as l am now feeling a lot better. Although it is still quite chilly, the Plum tree has started to blossom..lovely.
The next image is to show the world that the UK can have beautiful " blue sky" days!
As people who know me will be aware, l love cranes and scaffolding. Just down the road on Putney Hill they have knocked down the old college and are putting up a block of flats.
Don't skeleton leaves look so beautiful. Nature is an amazing thing.
Oh boy..this purple is just so intense. Would love to find something that would dye this colour naturally! Now that would be a find.
Last week, l had a sudden urge to go and get my hair cut. In Putney there is a hairdressers called Tomato, isn't that a wonderfully random name? Just before l decided to do this l saw this guy and thought he was wonderfully dressed! Then, imagine my surprise when l am introduced to my hairdresser ...it is the same guy, great fun and he is Polish.
Is there no stopping this man!!As my next door neighbours said..."Look out Jane Asher". For those who only know her as an actress, she also makes and decorates amazing Cakes !
Tony and l were not feeling that good on Friday but we went to The Affordable Art Fair (AAF) because we wanted to compare prices etc. for my own Art Practice. Having used the "Overground" route, it was only a few mins walk to Battersea Park, were the Fair was being held. This is one of the doors we saw on our walk to the Park......good house keeping going on here! Ha!
This statue is in the Park...A War Memorial but for some reason it really freaks me out. Not sure why. I think it might be something to do with the eyes!
The sign to tell you where the Art Fair is! Not exactly small is it?
This "Green" sculpture was at the entrance to the Fair. I really loved watching the wheel spin and the spheres twist in the wind.
Urban Nature along The Thames.
Bird in flight in front of Chelsea Bridge, London. If you click on this image, l hope you can see the iconic Red London Bus on the right-hand side of the bridge?
Can you see the ducks on the shingle beside the Thames?
I thought these flowers were so delicate and the colour is just so rich. Must find out the name of the plant in case l ever have a garden!
As we were walking along the Thames we saw this Refuse Barge slowly coming towards us. It came up to another barge and we just thought it would carry on but we were a bit concerned when they appeared to be getting VERY close to each other.
Then the Refuse Barge started to turn round and go back in the direction it had come from! It was not the easiest manoeuvre but was carried out with great skill, in my opinon.
If you look closely you will see one of the men, on the Refuse Barge, throwing a thick rope to a man on the stationary barge. That is quite a throw!
Two barges now connected. I was fascinated to watch this whole operation and now l am wondering how long they will stay here and then where will they go?
I have never seen Battersea Power Station from this angle before but was only able to get two and a bit of the four towers in!
We have large rats in London..hence the size of this trap!
Interesting front door and love the letter-box.
On our way home.."Mind The Gap!"
