Richmond Park London

“Richmond Park, in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, is the largest of London’s Royal Parks, and is of national and international importance for wildlife conservation. It was created by Charles I in the 17th century as a deer park.”Wikipedia

We visited the Park but only had time for a short visit. Here are a few pictures taken today. Please scroll down. Clearly the huge Park will reward a visit of several hours. What a beautiful and precious place. Refreshments are available – see last picture.

Visiting Sydney’s famous Royal Botanical Gardens – scroll down to see pictures.

We visited the Gardens a few days ago. Spent about an hour there. It immediately became obvious that the Gardens offer visitors a lifetime of joy. The joy of learning about the countless labelled trees and flowers The joy of just looking at the beauty. The lush green lawns. The ever present bird life. And all this a stone’s throw from the equally famous Sydney Opera House. Here are some pictures. Believe me, pictures are fun but are no substitute for a personal visit. go there! Enjoy.
