Lake Park Walk in the Sunshine.

Lake Park Walk in the Sunshine.

We went for a stroll around the Norwood Lake Park this afternoon. It was pleasant in the sunshine under a blue, blue sky with a lazy, hazy white moon hanging about up there too.

I took a few photographs of trees ….. this one planted with Teds’ help two Autumns ago, with new buds to open.

All around was bright and clean, uncluttered by Autumn leaves and park-goer’s detritus.

… and did you spot the berries? Last time I photographed berries like this they were outlined in frost.

    You’ve a lot more starting into bloom there than we do here. We have had snowdrops earlier than usual, and daffodils. I’ve seen the occasional japonica blossom opening in locations much more favoured by the sun, but nothing doing on ours. And I think the blue wild flower is alkanet if I remember rightly – nothing like that here or the orange “bunch of grapes” formation blossom which I can’t remember, not seen that around here either.

    It was quite a diverse selection in the sunshine :good: :-) the orange is some sort of Berberis I am told…..Barbary Berberis Darwinii I think!! :good: :rose:

    That was lovely Anne. I loved the variety of birds and all that water. Is this your CP park?

  4. gertie says:

    Not this one Jane/Cilla; it’s the Norwood Lake Park which is in the opposite direction, but just as close…we are between the two :lol: I think there was a smaller variety of birds there than at Crystal Palace Park, but that may just be a seasonal difference as we get lots of birds flying in and out of CPP during the year. :rose:

  5. Looks a lovely walk, Anne! It’s amazing how much green there is in London really :-)

    Mmm, thanks Jane :-) It was a lovely walk, especially with the sun , and finding the Medlar tree strong and growing again. We are lucky to be surrounded by parks here, thank goodness, but I often long for true wilderness, wild countryside, and tailored farmland surroundings. :rose:
