Osterley Park

I was at Osterley Park today. The house was built in the 16th century but extensively remodelled by Robert Adam in 1761.

Today it is no longer a country estate but part of the London Borough of Hounslow. It is a nice oasis in London.

Audley End

Today was cold as was yesterday but whereas yesterday was dull, grey and wet today was dry and sunny! I headed to Audley End which is somewhere I often go to on a Sunday afternoon!

Although Audley is a magnificent house what you see today is only about a third of what it once was! It was effectively a palace

It has a very fine walled garden, which has lots of old varieties of fruit trees. Work is being done in part of it and it is being replanted, it will be interesting to see how this works out! 

The Elysian Garden....

This is my fave tree....... whenever there is a big storm I like to be reassured it is still there.... it has its own support!

Different parts of London

I was between two offices today and slipped a camera in my pocket.

This is South Quay at Canary Wharf

And this is in Barking
