London Snaps: Street Art, Flowers & Nice Doors

London is full of interesting things! Here are just a few of them, spotted on some recent Nice Days Out.

Gorgeous blue doors in Rotherhithe, belonging to a 19th Century barge building and repair workshop.

Daisies at the lake in St James's Park (taken v quickly from under my umbrella as I dashed across the park to the Tube!)


David-Bowie-inspired Pac-Man mosaic street art. I thought this was a memorial piece but it looks like it's been there for a few years

Lots of flowers at Bayswater Tube station (don't you just love it when railway stations are well cared for like this?).

Snazzy green doors in Rotherhithe - I love how the old paint colour is showing through.

The sunken garden at Kensington Palace (on sunnier days, this is a lovely spot to eat icecream!).

A mural of the Queen at St Christopher's Place (just off Oxford Street). Apparently this was commissioned to celebrate her Majesty's 90th birthday.

The charming Duck Island Cottage in St James's Park:


An Instagram-friendly "DO WHAT YOU LOVE" mural in Islington. The next wall read (of course) "LOVE WHAT YOU DO".

And a fabulously overgrown walkway in Rotherhithe:
