Another day of walking instead of taking the bus (yay, fitness levels!). I needed to do a quick bit of shopping, so instead of taking the bus or walking the quickest way, I walked the slightly longer way into town via Canbury Gardens. Canbury Gardens is a little water side park by the Thames, that used to be grazing land in ancient times, then gravel pits, then a complete eye sore, then a public garden from the 1890s.
The Gardens are fairly well kept but there’s plenty of wild if you look in the cracks in the walls, the untended flower beds and along the river edge.
And water birds with their babies too, although they’re getting quite big now!
