Hurrah!  I first heard the screech of what I thought was swifts, and then a few moments later I saw two swooping and diving above the end of Myddleton at the Whittington corner.  They are 20 days…Continue

Last year the New River Path was just mud and gravel, this year it has lovely yellow flowers growing close to the river - over the tops of the metal piles.  And on the far bank there are lots of…Continue

Food for the Gods?

At about 7.45 on Saturday I was walking along the New River Path from Palmers Green.  I went over the North Circular, and then through the Green Space at the end of Russell Road.  A few yards along the next stretch of Path there was a large Indian meal for 2 laid out very neatly on an open sheet of newspaper in some Hindi language that was a few inches from the edge of the river.  Along with…See More

The swifts are back again!

Hurrah!  I first heard the screech of what I thought was swifts, and then a few moments later I saw two swooping and diving above the end of Myddleton at the Whittington corner.  They are 20 days earlier than last year - probably because the weather was so warm in April.  I hope they are joined by others - there used to be dozens every year and their numbers have dwindled.  Welcome back, Bowes Park Swifts, I hope you have a lovely and productive summer.See More

Spring in Bowes Park

Last year the New River Path was just mud and gravel, this year it has lovely yellow flowers growing close to the river - over the tops of the metal piles.  And on the far bank there are lots of primroses as usual. Trees are in blossom - here is one in Whittington Road - but do look at the magnolia in Bounds Green Road.Thank you to Helen who looks after the planters at the end of Myddleton Road - and thank you also to everyone for not picking the daffs this year.…See More

"Depends on how long you need it to be... but I have one on a wheel that you could borrow, and it is long enough for my garden.  Top end of Whittington Rd."

"Gosh, you have lived here a long time, Bernadette, and must have seen a great deal of changes. No... I do not drive, but have pals who do. Where do you live?  Then we could perhaps advise your quickest route. And a Happy New Year to you too."

10 years ago I wrote a short piece for some friends about daffodils and Bounds Green. I was deleting a load of old files and found it.  As it is daffodil time again, and there are even more people here escaping wars 'back home' , I am 'sharing' it wider.
