One of our favorite things to do on a lazy Saturday in London is to go for a stroll, so one day this summer we made a delivery to a friend near Little Venice, then meandered down the waterway in search of something to grace our day.
We eventually ended up at the gates of Regents Park which beckoned us in. I blogged about Regents Park 3 years ago, which you can read about here if you choose, but this time
instead of a lot of history and facts,
I thought I would just share some of the beauty
that we experienced that day.
We definitely were in the mindset of stopping and smelling the roses,
because their beauty was absolutely captivating
and so fragrant as well.
These were some of my very favorites.
It was important to look up and around, because there were roses everywhere, some 30,000 of 400 different varieties--oops! There I go again giving you facts,
when I promised you beauty.
Wouldn't a wedding reception be unbelievable in a setting like this? The celebration of this lucky couple with their family and friends seemed even sweeter amidst the roses.
As the raindrops started to fall, we headed out of the park under our umbrellas
to another favorite hang-out, Marylebone High Street, where we could duck in and out of little shops to avoid the showers.
And as it rained, in we went--to one of my favorite shops where the day ended on a high note.
Beauty comes in all forms--flowers and pottery both, don't you agree?
