Check Out This View
Amazing the difference in the display of snaps on camera screens versus computer screens.
I had felt quite discouraged when I took some pictures of the Terrace Gardens; until I saw them on my computer.
My capture doesn’t do justice to the view but it’s one that brings back lovely memories.
I have gone on walks here many times over the years, and sat down for a few hot drinks in its cute café.
I have watched Parakeets having fun,
Robins enjoying themselves, and sat on the edge of my seat whilst Crows came too close for comfort.
I have stood in awe of the Almighty as I gazed at its many magnificent trees; and felt amazement, observing its delicate mini garden designs.
I have been part of so much laughter and refreshing at this Gardens.
If I hadn’t known me better, I will say that I would visit this place more often if I lived close by.
It is so beautiful … so exquisite … with its little hills (fab for exercising), gorgeous plants, elegant trees, cute green house, changing flower arrangements, quaint café, scurrying squirrels, chirping birds, and view of the river Thames.
I lived about 5 mins walk away many years ago, when I had more time on my hands (I didn’t realise this then).
I wish I valued it as much then …
I wish I visited it daily to take in its fresh air then …
I wish I explored it weekly to fill me with wonder then …
I wish I sat there regularly to take in its beauty then …
I wish I allowed myself to be regularly enriched by it then …
I wish ….
So sad how we don’t always see the beauty around us … how we don’t always maximise the opportunities that stare us in the face.
I hope I do better now with what I have around me, so that I don’t wish I’d done so in time to come.
