April evening on the South Bank

After a morning working hard putting the netting on the "pea cage" (I'll tell you more of that another day) we drove down to London . . .

We walked past the shiny new Shard that slices into the sky (as you look at this, imagine the bells of Southark Cathedral pealing out in the background)

We strolled along the Jubilee Walk and past the bridges

We ate ice creams leaning on balcony of the Royal Festival Hall and watched the people below walking in the evening sunshine

We took our seats for the concert (Verdi's Requiem conducted by Daniele Gatti)

After the concert we looked at the twinkling lights on the river.


  1. Not the weather of last April, is it!
    I bet Requiem sounded fabulous in the concert hall.

  2. What a wonderful day. And Requiem, how magical.

  3. An enjoyable day out; one for the memory box.

  4. All in one day, Celia?

    What a variety of splendid possibilities are possible. With a certain geographical scale and reliable transport.

    I do look forward to more about this day trip. And envy you, too. xo

  5. what a day! - so close to perfection and you totally deserved it xxx

  6. A rather belated statement of envy from me ... what a wonderful way to spend an evening!

  7. How wonderful! Sounds like an enjoyable day.
