The Wren

In Denmark It is still miserably cold and it looks as if is going to continue. Luckily in our parts we
have escaped the snow, whilst other parts have been hit badly.
About half an hour ago I stood looking at the birds in the garden when this little Wren came along spending a good time on a rose bush.

The Umbrella Shop

When visiting London we like to stay in bloomsbury. After a solid breakfast in our hotel we often walk to the centre passing through Soho. At New Oxford Street we pass “The Umbrella Shop” James Smith & Sons. James Smith & Sons was founded in 1830 in Foubert’s Place. In 1865 it moved to its present place in New Oxford Street and has remained there almost unchanged. Apart from umbrellas, it makes and stocks Gentlemen’s canes and shooting sticks. The Umbrella Shop is known by all the Black Cab drivers, who learn its position as part of “The Knowledge”
