Our houseguests left yesterday. London was on her best behaviour, producing day after day of sun-filled, flower-strewn spectacles. Only a few rain clouds marred the two-week visit of my sister-in-law and her family, two wonderful children who I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know. (They also live outside the US, so it's been difficult to keep up with this branch of my husband's family.)
Here are some photos I took during the last couple of weeks. Enjoy our weather, vicariously. We paid for it, with an ugly grey winter.
Next week I go to The Netherlands. You can read about my last trip to Holland here. Yes, I'm double dipping—Holland is the only place I can think of that deserves a second visit.
Well, maybe London in Springtime.
Hyde Park, bulbs bursting through the green grass.
The Diana Fountain. The trees need some leaves, but they'll get there.
A more modern church: St Martin-in-the-Fields, the James Gibbs church off Trafalgar Square which is a model for many American churches.
Good evening, from Hyde Park.
