Ham House

I haven't been to Ham House in years. It has a stunning location in West London beside the River Thames....

Upon arrival it was misty.

The sun came out ! Yeah in B&W! But it meant some warmth!

Wimpole Hall

There was a sharp frost Saturday but that's fine I'd rather cold and bright blue skies than grey and damp.

Wimpole is the largest house in Cambridgeshire and the park is very important for wildlife.

Frosty leaves....

This tree is in the garden and I find it fascinating.... it has almost become two trees!

London Again

A dull grey damp and cold day in London. Yep I was up for another concert !!! And very good it was Iestyn Davies (countertenor), Elizabeth Kenny (Lute/Theorbo).

A few pics......

This is the The Kindertransport Monument. It is the Arrival by Frank Reisler.

 The Kindertransport (German for "children's transport") was an organised rescue effort that took place during the nine months prior to the outbreak of the Second World War. The United Kingdom took in nearly 10,000 predominantly Jewish children from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and the Free City of Danzig. The children were placed in British foster homes, hostels, schools and farms. Often they were the only members of their families who survived the Holocaust.

You may realise I like St Paul's...
