Spring has sprung so breaking off from working in the garden to take a walk in our local woods.
A five minute car ride and we are surrounded by countryside to the North of our Borough. Looking South from our nearest park where I walk regularly we overlook London, the best of both worlds.
This park was the estate of Havering Palace with King Charles the I being the last Monarch to stay there in the 17th century. It was used as a royal hunting lodge
Today we are going to begin by walking down the long path of Redwoods
till we come across the Snowdrops, so pretty and delicate
Of course on returning home the gardening is still there! Over the weekend I pruned two trees, 9 bushes and 6 rose bushes - that's just for starters - a lot more to do yet!
