The first pictures are taken in the gardens of Kenwood House. This enormous estate bordered by Hampstead Heath is an idyllic spot with beautiful trees, lakes and footpaths to hidden places. The house, estate and part of the art collection of the first Earl of Iveagh were bequeathed to the nation when he died in 1925. Concerts are held in the grounds in summer and it reminds me a lot of Kirstenbosch Gardens in Cape Town of course without the mountain as a backdrop.
Entry to the estate is free and when we visited the grounds were packed with families, dogs, lots of happy children and picnickers.
The following photographs are all taken in Cambridge. We took the bus to the city as it is one of those places where cars are not very welcome and park and ride is the way to go. Much easier, less stressful and cheaper as due to my extreme age I have a free bus pass!
Austin has an army function on Saturday evening and I have been asked to babysit Victoria. Something to look forward to and maybe I will have time to fit in some stitching whilst she is sleeping!
Have a good week .....................
