the weather is a little murky this morning, just how it should be. hopefully Autumn has finally arrived, it seems slower this year
.
this was taken last November during the second lockdown, I miss those endless days walking across the Heath faffing and foraging. happy days🍁x…

After a lifetime walking and running around the Heath I’ll never tire of exploring and noticing how it changes through the seasons.

How we’ve gradually gone from the dry summer earth to today’s sticky mud after a night of rain, how the wheel of colours turns each day and the way the sun glints through different corridors of trees as the daylight hours shift. Rediscovering and seeing through fresh eyes with each visit.

Today annegaelsenic and I wandered for a few beautiful morning hours as the sun came through the morning clouds. Getting off the paths (and into some slippery situations) finding new corners of beauty that make it easy to forget we’re right here in the city...
...

Christmas Eve always my favourite day. we won’t be heading to the pub to celebrate this year but we’ll still go for a long walk like we always do.
.
I’m going to take a break from Insta over Christmas, it won’t be the same but we’re going to make the most of it. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, take care & stay safe x...

💛 Heath views 💛

#qotd ~ Tell me one thing you love about your neighbourhood/the area you live in.

I absolutely adore where I live, and the Heath is definitely one of my favourite bits of my area -- endless walks in the woods, the trees, the wildlife, the stunning views, the lovely chats with neighbours (and their dogs)

Happy Friday, people!

lots of walks over the weekend and a picnic. I love picnics at this time of year, hot soup & rolls plus a flask of tea and chocolate. If it’s cold enough I’ll take a hot water bottle too.

I’ll miss Autumn when she’s gone🍁x...

Kenwood House, the north London gem beside Hampstead Heath, seen from behind its Sham Bridge today..
.
The Grade II listed fake bridge has divided opinions at Kenwood for more than 200 years. As long ago as 1793, the landscape gardener Humphrey Repton derided it as “below the dignity of Kenwood”, just a decade or so after it had been erected by Robert and James Adam for the second Earl Mansfield..
.
Repton proposed replacing the facade with an actual bridge. Luckily for those of us who enjoy such quirks, this was one of Repton's plans that the Mansfields did not accept..

The Dairy at Kenwood House, by Hampstead Heath in north London, which was built by George Saunders, the 2nd Earl Mansfield's architect from 1794-6, for the Earl's wife, Louisa..
.
Tending a dairy was a fashionable hobby for aristocratic women. But such dairies were still functional, and the one at Kenwood would have supplied the house with butter, milk and cream, while ice was stored in the ice-house below..
.
There are three small dairy buildings, with views over the Kenwood Estate and Hampstead Heath, comprising: the small, colourfully decorated octagonal tea room, where Louisa entertained her friends, the rooms where the dairymaid lived, and the dairy room. The original marble benches in the dairy room are still here, although the more than 30 black marble milk pans and basins listed in the accounts are missing..

In these dark and worrying times it’s reassuring to know that I can always depend upon nature’s ever changing landscapes to help ease the soul, and encourage hope for better days. It’s been a strange brew of troubled emotions throughout 2020 under the witchy spell of Covid lingering in the air like a bad smell but if it’s taught me anything it’s to re-evaluate what I value. Stay safe, keep smiling, be good to one another and I wish you all a very Merry Sickness and a Happy New Tier 😉🎄 #tier4london #naturesbeauty #covidchristmas2020 #sunsets #hampsteadheathponds #hopeforthefuture #naturelovers #hampsteadlondon #hampstead #ponds #duskphotography #londoner #hellonorthlondon #seizetheheath #londonparks#myhampsteadheath ...
