This week I have been practising my Spanish and trying to reacquaint myself with the Spanish verb tenses. There are just so many! I am enjoying it though and I have found many helpful apps to play games and practise.
This week we have pictures from the Walk and Talk tour John and Amber organised and also from the Kew gardens outing.
Have a great week,
WHAT CAN I SHARE WITH YOU TODAY?

O Pioneers! (1913) by Willa Cather
O Pioneers! (1913) was Willa Cather’s first great novel, and to many it remains her unchallenged masterpiece. No other work of fiction so faithfully conveys both the sharp physical realities and the mythic sweep of the transformation of the American frontier—and the transformation of the people who settled it. Cather’s heroine is Alexandra Bergson, who arrives on the wind-blasted prairie of Hanover, Nebraska, as a girl and grows up to make it a prosperous farm. But this archetypal success story is darkened by loss, and Alexandra’s devotion to the land may come at the cost of love itself.
Another one of my favourite Lockdown reads. I was given this book as a present for my birthday in February 2020, just before the Lockdown began. It’s a short but powerful read I couldn’t put down, I think I read it in two sittings. It is the first in a trilogy that doesn’t focus on the same story in each book but the themes of nature, love and growth persist.
Do you have any favourite books you would like to share? Have you been reading during Lockdown?
Walk and Talk Tour
“To be honest I didn’t really know what to expect from the walk but how I know where to look for historic monuments I will be looking out for everything! It was a lovely day and the weather helped! Chris did a good job and was very welcoming and friendly.”
Quote from an attendee.
Kew Gardens Visit
“I just wanted to thank you once again for organising the Kew Gardens visit on the 10th of April, and for having a ticket for me. I enjoyed the day enormously. You do such a wonderful job!” – Roger
Thank you for your kind words Roger and these lovely photos of Kew Gardens.
There is another trip to Kew Gardens on the 22nd of May, if you would like to reserve tickets please email John with the names of those attending.
“Another sunny day although slightly chillier in the shade. A few photos from my travels. Sumatran tiger in London Zoo last Friday” & Cosmo the Cat. – Stephen
