The City Gardens in the ruins of St Dunstan-in-the-East are a haven for the people of the city in the midst of all the hustle and bustle. This tranquil space with it’s many trees and shrubs is also home to many birds and small mammals. Sitting by the fountain, listening to sound of the wind rustling the leaves, birds singing and feeding in the flower beds, almost hidden under the ferns, you really do feel transported away to another, quieter, time.
I’m in London again tomorrow at St Thomas’ Hospital. At the back of the hospital by the gardens you will find what I have always thought to be the best view of the Palace of Westminster! I love looking across the Thames to see this beautiful building, framed by the trees and stone walls. The weather is looking rather unpredictable for the afternoon so whether I can get any more photography done, well we’ll just have to wait and see!
