This week we have had some lovely weather in Finsbury Park.

X-it gift shop

Looking for a gift, I bought two small blue and white ceramic bowls at the special price of £4.69 each at X-It (200 Stroud Green Road). I also picked up couple of cards, they have a good range for all occassions.

While out for a walk I noticed a flyer advertising an open garden as part of the National Garden Scheme Open weekend at 160a Stapleton Hall Road.

I visited on Sunday. It was a magical place, and a credit to the hard work and imagination of the owners.
It is always interesting to see what is usually hidden, and the tea and cakes were excellent.
I will look out for the event next year.

The Parkland Walk changes almost daily at this time of year. At the moment there are banks of cow parsley, hawthorn in blossom and some lovely dog roses.
It is idyllic to walk under the dappled shade of trees on a warm day.
