St James's Park and some hand painted cookies

 

Hi, my lovely friends! Hope you had a wonderful week!

Today I will share with you some photos from my last visit to London and some hand painted cookies I made inspired by them.

When I arrived in London at the beginning of April, spring was in its magnificence: bright blue skies, gardens with a lot of tulips, cherry blossoms, daffodils, forget-me-nots and much more beauty to be admired. To enjoy the prettiness of springtime I love having a picnic in the park. In London I chose St James's Park to have mine.

St James Park is the oldest of the eight Royal Parks in London. Located in the City of Westminster it is surrounded by the most famous landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, St James's Palace and Westminster. The Big Ben is just a short stroll away from Buckingham Palace and you will see spectaculars views along the elegant paths of the park. For me the most beautiful views are from the Blue Bridge located in the middle of the St James's Park Lake. If you look west you will see the Buckingham Palace, and if you look east you will see the Whitehall, Horse Guards and London Eye.
