There are sunny days in London after all!

Londoners love to complain about the weather. I lost count of how many times conversations at the water cooler start with "not the best of weather, is it?"

I know it doesn't feel like it these days but we did have a couple of sunny days over the last bank holiday. In fact, there was brilliant sunshine all round from Saturday all through Monday.

No, I didn't take the train out to the countryside like I planned to. Instead, we headed to Hyde Park. So here are some photos to remind ourselves the next time we gripe that there are good days after all. Even in London.

All we need is some water sprouting from the vessel

Even the flowers looked a bit parched under the sun

Believe it or not, I headed for some shelter after an hour or so under the sun

Now, the Serpentine does remind me of Singapore's MacRitchie
