Lawson Cypress






Three pictures of the same tree, with its parallel offshoots, yesterday evening. It's in the, uh, grounds of the new Herald House. There's another one alongside but it is incorrigibly tangled with two other trees and undergrowth.

London Plane trees, Du Cane Road






Du Cane Road is lined on both sides with London Plane trees. They are tall and not apparently deformed by pollarding unlike some others. These are three of the ones along the south side of the street opposite Wormwood Scrubs.

Wood End Road
They are complex flowers, very beautiful, and there are lots growing wild round here. Can you identify them?*

Singapore London Property for sale: The Library at London Willesden Green

SingaporePropertyHunt.com says:

QUOTE:

for Sale: The Library at London Willesden Green*

"a good time for investment both for capital appreciation and currency appreciation London properties are worthy investment as investors can also look forward to reaping good yields ... a rare opportunity to own a piece of heritage London in a much sort [sic] after north west London Borough of Brent."

Note: "The Library" now means the investment apartments. The former library becomes "a cultural centre". Doesn't it make your blood boil? Ed.

Willesden Library Centre redevelopment



 


We're to have a Stalinist patronising "Cultural Centre" instead of the library centre and several blocks of flats advertised for sale in Singapore, guaranteed to contain "no affordable housing" and "no key worker housing". And Willesden Green now has no car park.

Back in the world again



David Gray on the Late Late Show live from Dublin. WH had a couple of spies in the audience for this and it was pretty cool. Also spotted the man himself and his band at the RTÉ canteen earlier in the evening. Did you know that his album White Ladder is the best selling album ever in Ireland?

Sing along...



...if you can keep up.
