There’s a Bright Golden Haze on the Meadow

Poor Mummy; nonetheless the trip to England allowed me to catch up with family and friends.

First to Rosy and Barry’s house, which is beautiful and at its best in very hot Summer weather.

Huge flowering gardens go with the house

Then up to London to Ian and Ann’s. Another beautiful garden and outstanding food.

Clapham in the Summertime.

The next day we take a river bus down the Thames to visit the Cutty Sark. It is the hottest day ever in England!

Wonderful trip.

Then to Alan’s in Stony Stratford. Again wonderful hospitality. Stony Stratford is an ancient English town steeped in tradition and beautiful hanging baskets.

There are dozens all over the town center.

Another one.

Lunch in a country pub with niece Kathleen, husband Jonathan and amazing kids, Isabel and Alex.

Kids with Japanese doggies.
I love pubs and Fish and Chips.

Then to Oxford to stay with old friend Roger. We visit the Naoko Matsubara exhibition in the Ashmolean Museum. Very fine.


Naoko had previously given me one of her pieces, of which I am very proud.

My Matsubara in new frame.

We then have lunch in Balliol, Roger is a Fellow. In fact he’s a jolly good fellow.

Roger is hungry.

Ah England, messed up politics but a great place to visit.

Many, many thanks to all who showed such kindness and hospitality.
