The bright front doors of Islington
It was another beautiful sunny day today in London. There’s a bit of a chill in the air but no clouds to be seen.
I found a park today near Angel tube station that I’ve never seen – Duncan Terrace Gardens. It’s really just a narrow strip of trees between Duncan Terrace and Colebrooke Row, which has recently been re-planted and done up. Apparently Charles Lamb once lived there, which explains the name of the pub just round the corner (it sells lovely pies as well. And beer).
The house owners on Duncan Terrace have all painted their front doors different colours, they looked super-bright and cheerful in the sunshine.
I’m posting them here as I think this behaviour should be encouraged. In fact, it should probably be illegal to paint your front door black. A nice colourful front door cheers everyone up.
