Such a beautiful picture, probably one of the most beautiful I have ever seen — of anyone or anything. Amazing.

Thank you. WE are having the best weather in Europe at the moment apparently. For the whole of the long Easter weekend — Monday is bank holiday as well, And it is gonna stay like this all the way till Tuesday, when everyone is back to school and work. Tuesday it is gonna be cooler and raining. Usually it is the other way around here, there have been lots of jokes going around about how on Bank holidays it is always raining and bucketing and the weather is guaranteed to be utter crap. Well, not this year. We are having fantastic weather — it is sunny, very warm, birds are singing, bees are buzzing, lots of flowers.

Sorry to hear you are having such bad weather in Moscow and you have a flu on top of that. But I am going to cheer you up in a minute with some fantastic pics from Richmond Park today. We went on a picnic there this morning — I only got back home right now, my kids and husband and relatives went on to Battersea Park Zoo for their Easter hunts and events, I just can't walk anymore, I didn't have a rest yesterday after that run the day before yesterday and I am in so much pain at the moment, I just have to stay still and not walk for a bit.

Richmond Park is not just a park you know, it is one of my all time favourite places, cause my husband grew up in Kingston upon Thames and spent a lot of time in Richmond as a kid. Each time we go there we pass the school he went to as a kid, etc. London is full of parks, London is 47% green land, but Richmond is a bit different. It is like a wild place mostly — it is a place where King Henry the 8th used to hunt deer. There is a lot of deer in Richmond Park — 3 kinds of deer — Red deer, spotty deer and some other deer. There are oaks that are hundreds of years old. But there is also a place which is full of flowers and little streams — it is like paradise, it is called Izabella Plantation. I am going to post some pics in a minute, I took them this morning.

Izabella plantation part of Richmond Park — there were beautiful butterflies there today and bees and birds singing, but i didn’t manage to photo them

















Just look at the colours — a lot of painters come to this place to paint nature paintings — no surprise

Wild blue bells — did you know that half of the world’s wild bluebells are in England?













Camellias, azaleas and rhodedendrons

Pond lilies

















People having picnics

































Lavender- all the flowering shrubs, trees and bushes are wild





Pond with ducks





Ivy by the pond — reminds me of Ukraine for some reason













Colourful Chinese duck

















https://a.radikal.ru/a25/1904/29/d047a2d14e94.jp...





Tree with a big nose











Egyptian goose









Picnic lawn













Poster about animals in Richmond Park









Magnolia








Red deer (hope you can see it, couldn’t come closer, as the stag can attack if one comes to close to the herd)





Spotty deer

Yes, this park is hundreds of years old and it is huge. Pubs and cafes are also all dressed up for Easter here — here is the pic of Ivy in Wimbledon — we are gonna go out for dinner there with our Irish relatives later tonight — they love the place — I might pass, as my legs are literally killing me — my husband just phoned and said «you got to come» and I am like «No, I am in so much pain, I have been running around these last couple of days and haven't recovered from that 26 mile run», I am sure they will understand and I am not really hungry to be honest — I stuffed myself at the picnic.
Ivy









Fire Stables pub












A funny Easter Egg called The Eton Mess - it’s a posh egg

P. S. The nature is great in Richmond, and the air is fantastic — some plants grow there which only grow in ultra clean air. And the scents, the birds singing, etc. — it is impossible to pass it on with just pics, all the atmosphere, one has to visit the place really, it is truly great.

Here is the view of the Richmond Park from the top





Here is the house of Henry the 8th's lover in the park, this is the back of it, it is now a café (the front of it)





This is the back of Hampton Court — this was built by the kings after HEnry, it is a Baroque part of the Palace's architecture, not Tudor or Gothic — like the front in my pics. Hampton Court is next to Richmond Park, Richmond Park used to be Henry the 8th's hunting ground, he hunted deer there.





<nobr>P. S.</nobr> 2 — got to go, the phone is ringing again. Looks like I will have to go out to dinner. Our relatives are leaving for Ireland tomorrow afternoon, and tomorrow morning we are all going to church.

Speak later.)

P. S. Forgot to mention — MP for Richmond is Zac Goldsmith — a Tory Eurosceptic — he is a great looking guy and very rich — a billionaire.









Gonna go and get dressed now — it is gonna take an hour, as I can hardly move.

Have a great evening).
