We have just spent a lovely weekend visiting our son and daughter in law in London. Went for a relaxing walk at the nature reserve at Rickmansworth on the Saturday morning.
These were the swans that greeted us – what a lovely welcome.
Soon spotted lots of fungi – sure sign that autumn is on the way.
Also lots of beautiful bark on the trees around us.
There were masses of wild asters around the lake for the bees and butterflies to enjoy,
along with what I think are a few mallow flowers.
Loads of Hawthorn berries on the trees, ready to feed the birds in the winter.
I loved the hundreds of beautiful trees, casting welcome shade in the sun.
We really enjoyed our visit, its wonderful that London has so many parks like this, they certainly are the lungs of the city. What better way to conclude a wonderful morning than with a superb pub lunch at The Feathers in Rickmansworth !
