London brings the sun.

Well done London! You did it. The sun's out. I took the scenic route to work this morning. Everyone's in a great mood this week because it feels as though Spring is here. I always feel jubilant, as a cyclist, to have made it through the cold dark months.


This Italian deli in Islington (used to be A. Ferrari) is a brilliant place to stop should you ever need a coffee, or a pot of homemade pesto or really delicious soup to take home. It has recently been taken over from the previous owner of seventy years. The new owner is a sweetheart who lets you taste everything, offered to let me pay next time I came and knocked a bit of money off a bottle of wine I said was too expensive for me.


Love how the railings in the churchyard have been shaped around the cattle trough. And look! Flowers! Yay! Sunshine!

  10. Thanks for your lovely comments dudes! I'm glad I stopped to take the pictures, now. I'm useless, always seeing things that I want to photograph but then don't bother. :/ Must try harder.

    JB - don't be homesick. It has been a reallly long, cold and VERY WET winter. Sucky. Crack a tinny, get your speedos on and get over it. xxx
