Maybe I should change the name of this blog, I haven't been abroad since we returned from Japan, NZ and America last December! Of course I continue to write about Britain, and we are off to Spain soon but it's for a family wedding near Malaga. So perhaps that doesn't count. :)
I enjoyed visiting Malaga three years ago. I've just realised I hardly wrote anything about it and posted only a very few of the pictures I took there. Well, then, here are two more. The hotel had a bath where the water changed colour and I have to admit I loved it.
But - I promise, there will be more and better pictures of Malaga soon!
Another thing I haven't done this year is walked in a bluebell wood. We try to do it every year, but just not managed it. Still, we went to Hampstead Heath last weekend and spotted some bluebells although nothing like the carpets of flowers you see in bluebell woods. These were in the grounds of the English Heritage property, Kenwood House.
There is always something lovely to see on the Heath. Here's wisteria on Kenwood House's walls....
and the rhododendrons in full bloom in the garden...
not to mention this fantastic tree which I had never noticed before.
We walked back home up a street of marvellous houses, mostly about 200 years old. Several of them had red and yellow VOTE LABOUR posters in their windows. The idea of paying Labour's "mansion tax" doesn't bother them, obviously
One thing I can't do is get away from the election. Another thing I haven't done is decided who gets my vote. I am so, so uninspired by all the main parties.
