Hyde Park

The weather, although cold while I was in London, was clear and sunny. Good for getting out and going for a walk.

There were hundreds of people were out in Hyde Park enjoying the sun and soaking up some Vitamin D.

A favourite poem of mine has always been Daffodowndilly by A.A. Milne. Maninly because of the word Daffodowndilly.

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
“Winter is dead.”

This metal flower was part of an ornate gate near a large sculpture of the Lion and the Unicorn.

A cool mosaic that reminded me just how old London is. There was already a great city there before Polynesians had set foot in New Zealand. So many different cultures and people have called London home.

I have an achilles heel for statues. New Zealand needs more statues.
