Brunch, Paper Flowers and Post Box

29 Jul

We love having brunch in Caffe Concerto before we spend the day in The Royal Academy. Today I had Eggs Benedict – delicious!

In the Burlington Arcade there were hanging bouquets of beautiful paper flowers.

Along the street I noticed a very interesting plaque on a post box.

Given yesterday’s post – I smiled at a dozen strangers today and eleven smiled back. Three stopped for brief cheerful conversations. I was very happy with that!

    What is a pillar box? I’ve never heard the term before. Is it the mailbox?

    Smiles are no good until you give them away! I love to smile at strangers, if nothing else it makes them wonder what I have been up to! I love the colourful upside down bouquets.

    I have never seen such paper flowers before. They actually looked quite real in the picture. All beautiful things beautifully photographed!

      Thank you. It was a lovely day full of beauty and the Summer Exhibition at the RA had some treasures. I’ll post a gallery tomorrow when we get home and have the desktop to play with. 🙂
