We ate a lot of salad in London, since we had been too nervous to eat it in India.
The vegetables there were wonderful, but we only ate them cooked.
A white on white window near Great Ormond Street.
I was walking to the Persephone Bookshop on Lamb's Conduit Street
where I bought four books, even though I'm rather fierce about carrying heavy luggage.
I particularly recommend Tea with Mr.Rochester by Frances Towers.
If you don't know Persephone Books, go there now.
This doorway with primroses and black plastic bin-bag looks as if someone lives there.
I love a spectacular entrance. I want the door with the fanlight, but it would look really silly on our log cabin.ReplyDelete
oops, I deleted my previous comment because of misspellings. Here we go again. How very London. Love the salad in action photo; live food! ;~)ReplyDelete
Oh now you have me wanting to go to London ...ReplyDelete
I want that blue door. Oh, now I'm homesick!ReplyDelete
So very very London!ReplyDelete
Oh, I love that quote you've chosen by E.Forster - "Only connect"...so true, so true.ReplyDelete
Your salads look delish. I love all these photos and I clicked the last one to see what those little squares in the sidewalk in front of the house are---water and gas! Interesting to have them right at the front entrance like that.
your greens look delish & I love the grand doorway. It makes me want to see what's behind it.ReplyDelete
I just love to wander the streets in London, just admiring the doors!!ReplyDelete
Oh, this is tooooo weird!! I have a vintage copy of "Tea with Mr. Rochester" right here on my desk, as we speak. I bought it online from Persephone Bookshop!!!!! (haven't read it yet)ReplyDelete
Salad looks delicious :) Are you still in the UK?ReplyDelete
I love these pictures of the little details of London that make it seem instantly more familiar, even though I haven't been there (yet).ReplyDelete
the white on white window is just wonderful!ReplyDelete
Oh you've been so close! I work in the Senate House, Russell Square, and I know Lamb's Conduit Street so well... and yes, I have been to Persephone Bookshop and I bought three books. But I'll go there again.ReplyDelete
You've inspired me to take photos of Bloomsbury doorways. I love London. Thanks!
They really knew how to make the houses grand in London, didn't they? That "apotheosis" is spectacular. Lovely shots. Always a treat to visit with you.ReplyDelete
The second last photo...what a door indeed! A very grand entrance! And that salad looks very tasty. Mmmmm!ReplyDelete
Hope you have a lovely weekend :)
Persaphone is on my to do list before I leave... That and the London Eye! Your salad makes me hungry.ReplyDelete
