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.

What beautiful trees. Hundreds of them in full bloom along avenues make a breath taking sight. I grew up with them in Bulawayo in what is now Zimbabwe. Unforgettable.

The Voice of the Redwoods

Can you hear the joy of the saplings as they grow into magnificent giants?. The sound of the mighty forest is silent thunder. The road invites me to enter this eternal sanctuary. Please join me on the journey. Listen to the silent words as the Redwoods speak to you.
