Travel Photo of the Day (September 5)

The weather in London is gorgeous today. When I took Miles for his walk, the temperature was mild. There was a slight breeze and the sky was a brilliant blue without a cloud in sight. This is the type of weather I love. Each winter I long for hot summer days. Then after a couple of hot days, I want autumn weather. I used to love hot weather. As I get older, I find it disagreeable. For today’s travel photo I decided to showcase London. I took this photo earlier this summer in the Sunken garden outside of Kensington Palace. I should wander over soon and check out the fall colors.

    What a beautiful photo. Like you, my favorite days are those sunny days when you can walk or sit in the sun for hours and but not get too hot. I am looking forward to Autumn myself!

    • TBM says:

      I love sitting outside, not getting too warm so I don’t have to worry about getting burned. I don’t tan, I burn. I wish you a beautiful Autumn!

    I think we’ve switched weather today. It’s usually brilliantly sunny in the Catskills (well at least in the summer) but today is drizzley and damp. Fall is around the corner for us.

    • TBM says:

      I’ve never been to the Catskills, but hear that it is lovely. Enjoy the drizzle, if you like drizzle. I’m a fan of gloomy weather, since it’s perfect for reading.

      • patricia says:

        You should visit sometime. Lot’s of great stuff around here. Camping, hiking, canoeing. Several breweries to visit, also just found out Oscar Wilde would visit Sharon Springs to get rejuvenated. πŸ™‚

      • TBM says:

        That’s pretty cool about Oscar Wilde. And I love being outdoors and did you say breweries, you know how to hook me πŸ™‚ I hope I can make it there

  5. That’s just beautiful. The last time we were in London it was the end of August, beginning of September and we had the most gorgeous weather while there. It was just perfect!

    • TBM says:

      This September has been great so far. I moved here last September and was surprised how beautiful the weather was here. I’m hoping for another great autumn. Thanks!

  6. Beth Ann says:

    It has been so hot here and now it is going to cool off dramatically! I am happy in a way, but also am dreading the snow. Ugh. Thanks for the glimpse of London beauty today!

  7. pattisj says:

    This is beautiful. Love the colors, and how neat/tidy/even everything is. There’s nothing like that in my garden!

    We have returned to rain and now a southerly has come in dropping the temperature. But with my daughter in Wichita I long for some of her warmth. She tells me it is 42%C over there and iIthink maybe not. Growing up in Australia I remember similar temperatures during the summers, but as I get older such extremes seem well…extremely uncomfortable.

    • TBM says:

      42…that sounds miserable. I hear that Australia can get extremely hot and when I watch the Australian Open I feel for the tennis players. Yes, they train for heat, but still, it has to be draining. I hope you get your warm days soon, but not too hot πŸ™‚

  9. Northern Narratives says:

    I would love to sit next to that garden πŸ™‚

  10. scrapydo says:

    Looks like a beautiful garden. Very colorful

  11. Fergiemoto says:

    That looks like a nice Springtime shot! The colors are beautiful!
    Well done.

  12. So jealous of your beautiful walking spots!

  13. melouisef says:

    our summer rains (I know it is still spring) has started

  14. Gilly Gee says:

    No! Don’t wish us into autumn! The colour won’t arrive until late October.

  15. niasunset says:

    This is so beautiful… I wished to be there now… Thank you dear TBM, have a nice day, love, nia

  16. T.F.Walsh says:

    What a beautiful garden… πŸ™‚

  17. Beautiful picture! Love the colors!

  18. 52BrandNew says:

    What a beautiful day it must have been! I much prefer cooler weather, too. It is very humid here in NJ right now!
