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 ...

I would love a bench dedicated in memory of me — a way for the children I’ve taught to remember the fun times we’ve shared with the other teachers in the woods and meadows. Sometimes I wonder if the children I’ve taught ten years ago in Singapore would still remember me, because I cannot remember the faces of my own preschool teachers. I remember one name, though. Zaitun. It means ‘Olive’, in Malay — my mother tongue. I remember dancing with other children in a little room, with handkerchiefs in our hands. I remember playing basic PC games with files transferred by floppy disks. I remember my mom telling me I peed myself after crying and screaming on my first day of preschool. It’s funny how we can’t really pick and choose what we remember from our childhoods. The mind is a peculiar thing. #blackandwhitephotography #myhampsteadheath ...

At the end of the day there’s no better way than to sit on a hill and watch the sun go down 🌞#hampsteadwestheath #sunsetonhampsteadheath #hampstead #londonsunset #februarysunset #seizetheheath#myhampsteadheath ...

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..

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..

Doggie walkies. ...

Pond Life. Managed to take a much needed walk with our dog on Hampstead Heath today. I wasn’t expecting to see so many other humans who were all probably starved of fresh air and exercise. I love this view but imagine what it must l👀k like for those lucky enough to live in those houses. The streets are still eerily quiet during this lockdown, but hopefully we won’t have to wait for too many weeks/months before we can all step outside without fear of infection. It’s like living in a si-fi movie. #hampsteadheathponds ##coronaviruslondon #hope #stillwatersrundeep #hampsteadponds #heathandhampsteadsociety #hellonorthlondon #myhampsteadheath #naturelovers #bluedays #londonparks #walkingthedog🐕#visithampsteadheath#london_city_photo ...

What a stunning way to start this foggy day. 🌬 #myhampsteadheath ...

I’m a morning person but when I’m at home, I love wasting my mornings on trash tv shows. Even though I live about 10 minutes walk away from Parliament hill, I’m ashamed to admit this is only the first time I’ve ever caught the sunrise here. Better late than never... right? #myhampsteadheath #ppinthenow ...

Hampstead Heath, ladies pond, London.

This was my first visit to this small oasis, a fragment of wild nature nestled in the heart of London, and goodness it was lovely.

There are 3 swimming areas here; a mixed pond which is closest to Hampstead Heath Overground Station, a Ladies Pond and a Male Pond, both of which are closer to the Highgate and Kenwood end of Hampstead Heath.

Here are 3 books set here to learn more about the magic and tranquility of these ponds: .📖 ‘At the Pond: Swimming at Hampstead Ladies’ Pond’ - Esther Freud, Margaret Drabble & Sophie Mackintosh .📖 ‘Taking the Waters: A Swim around Hampstead Heath’ - Caitlin Davies, Ruth Coiney .📖 ‘Pondlife: A Swimmer’s Journal’ Al Alvarez

Heading to Hampstead Heath today to see an exhibition by Ian Berry at the cattogallery very excited to see his work in the flesh. It’s also a very dear friends Birthday and I’ve gone a bit plantastic on the itinerary, it also includes parliament_hill_lido which feels like a good enough excuse to share this again!

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...
