Lumiere London took place around the Capital weekend; this is not to be confused with Diwali because there was no curry to be found down in Regents Street. Sadly.
The various exhibitions dotted about town were a genuine delight; I also thought it was very cool to see a very strong showing from indigenous Londoners amongst the massive crowds who had turned up for a mooch.
Must have been too cold for the Russians!?
The exhibits varied greatly; elaborate projections onto buildings, a garden of light in Leicester Square and an island of household rubbish in Trafalgar square were all very thought provoking.
I think my favourite ‘piece’ was the CGI elephant on the giant LCD screen; it looked so realistic and the various elephant noises that boomed out the speakers gave it a presence that I did not expect!
Summer is in full swing, well, until next week when the weather is meant to get crap again!
Thought I’d put up a little gallery of Mum’s garden; so many of the flowers are in bloom and the climbers are really starting to get a hold on the trellises that are dotted around the place.
Paul, my Sisters fella, has done a grand job with the decking and all the woodwork that he has done; I have done my part, having potted and bedded a good deal of the plants and climbers you can see in the gallery below. Replanting the hydrangeas took some doing let me tell you!
Forgot how much I loved to garden, I often helped my Nan when I was a kid (she was a gardening genius) and would often do the same with Mum (clearly followed in her footsteps). It is a simple pleasure?
We still have to move bits around and I also have to assemble and position my KILLER PIT BBQ! But for now, here you go.
