The love that dare not speak its name!

A plaque commemorates two men who "lived in a course of uninterrupted friendship for 60 years..." on the north wall of the sanctuary in St Stephen's Church, Canterbury.

The two Williams met when they were aged 16 and 20.

Parks, food, Walworth & inclusion...just a few of my favourite things. Covered here by one of my favourite writers Jonathan Nunn. I'm not sure Southwark Council's reasoning for keeping the BBQs closed, but we need better models of park management. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2023/jun/17/extraordinary-barbecues-council-shut-them-down-london-burgess-park?fbclid=PAAaZsJH-hvQB096x3TN6SgMesWb_JFc63pRsdLtrSChTEuA7wf5hn2gsaOkk&utm_source=pocket_saves

Here's a #postcard of the Camberwell College of Art, part of the University of the Arts, London. Like many art schools, it had its origins in colleges of arts and crafts, aimed at training people for trades. Hence the 'Polytechnic' label on the card

It taught fine arts from the 1920s; in 1986 it became part of the London Institute, which in turn became University of the Arts London in 2004.

Old postcard of the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts. The colour card in landscape orientation shows a Victorian brick building, with facings of white stone. It is three floors high, with a slate roof, many chimneys, ornate windows and a grand central door. It is on an empty  street. At the foot of the card is printed in black "Polytechnic buildings, Peckham Road"

Meet a beautiful-blooming #CamelliaSasanqua!!

Itโ€™s most common name is sasanqua #camellia and this species of Camellia is native to China and Japan.

Most species of camellias require a large amount of water, so with the steady rainfall of late (and relative mild summer) itโ€™s no wonder these are blooming in abundance.

Did you know? ๐Ÿค”

There are over 250 known species to the genus Camellia ๐Ÿคฏ

Take a moment to enjoy this unusually twisted and very big London Plane in #camberwell #southlondon #treesofmastdon

Bloody big tree which looks as Twisted as an oak but is in fact a London plane. Vanessa is a tiny figure dwarfed beside it.

The trusty ID app tells me this is a #CotinusCoggygria, the European smoketree, Eurasian smoketree, smoke tree, smoke bush, Venetian sumach, or dyer's sumachโ€ฆ so many names!!

Itโ€™s from the family Anacardiaceae.

This unique tree is native to a large area from southern Europe, east across central Asia and the Himalayas to northern China.

And yes, those hair-like structures are giving, but somehow coarse and sturdy at the same time. Haha. Thatโ€™s the only way I can explain it.

Perhaps what I think, a tumble weed would feel like ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿค”

Anyways, the diversity of flora in our world is just astounding, donโ€™t you think?

This gorgeous deep pink #crepemyrtle was amongst over half a dozen displaying nicely in #Camberwell #Australia recently.

So colourful. So lush.

#skyblueclustervine have been flowering profusely and for some weeks may I add, in Melbs the past couple of months.

Theyโ€™re so resilient and generous in their display period, that it seems theyโ€™re everywhere around the suburban streets here.. likeโ€ฆ all the time!!

I really like that theyโ€™re a simple flower, subtle in colour and size - and the greenery that accompanies them sets the purples (in this case) off just perfectly.

Also, had a little multi-legged critter tagging along for a photo bomb! ๐Ÿ“ธ

Such is #Melbourneโ€™s weather, โ€˜four seasons in one day, raining, drizzly in the morning, blue skies, sun and glorious this arvo.

The sight of this #crepemyrtle warranted a stop off and snapping.
Itโ€™s just gorgeous.

This is in its flowering prime and was surrounded by about 8 others of the same size and colour, at a care facility in #Camberwell #Australia.

Bursting with goodness and colour - OMG!!

#heaven!

Podranea ricasoliana, called the #pinktrumpetvine, is a flowering plant in the genus Podranea, native to South Africa, Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia.

I love the subtle whites and pinks, as well as the visible vein-like appearance in the centre of its โ€˜trumpetโ€™ section, within its flowering head.

Its leaves are so healthy and vibrant too.

Delicate. Pretty.

The pink trumpet vine grows as an evergreen, vining shrub with woody and twining stems, lacking tendrils, that can reach a height of 5 m. The up to 25 cm long, opposite leaves are imparipinnate and composed of 5 to 13 ovate, lanceolate-ovate to broadly oblong-elliptic, pointed leaflets, 2-7 x 1-3 cm or somewhat larger on new shoots. The leaves are dark green

I think this is a Sorbaria sorbifolia, the #falsespiraea; itโ€™s a species of flowering plant in the family Rosaceae.

If so, these heads will bloom further to display a furry/feathery white appearance in weeks to come.

Cannot wait!

This is in #camberwell #Australia.

The various shapes, colours and contrasts of this urban garden in #Camberwell #victoria #Australia from the footpath is simply stunning.

Taken at dusk, I was wondering what this garden looks like from inside. But didnโ€™t dare impose or invade the owners privacy (of course)!

Iโ€™ve seen this same view throughout the day during high sunlight and if youโ€™re impressed by this, just think five-fold super impressive, during mid arvo.

Good job proud home-owners-come-gardeners ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒธ

You can live in my world!

#smoketrees are coming into their own at the moment throughout Melbourne.

Theyโ€™ll soon look a little scraggly but for now theyโ€™re light, feathery and appealing to the eye.

Im seeing them in a load of suburbs at the moment.

These were taken in #camberwell and #bohill / two different trees.

This little building located on a suburban street in #camberwell was once the local butchery - yes just like milk bars, bakeries and mechanics, they were often once a feature in your neighbourhood.

It has been preserved magnificently and still has the faded description / painted signage on the top of the canopy.

Brickwork is awesome. Itโ€™s a visual hedonistโ€™s and old-age building loverโ€™s delight!

As I am still on an extended #introduction: if Town Halls and Civic Centres are your thing, here are three things I have written which may be of interest...

First, Hackney Town Hall, which has been beautifully restored: https://lccmunicipal.com/2018/06/12/as-good-as-new-hackney-town-hall/

Second, Hounslow Civic Centre, which has been sadly demolished:

Finally, neither restored nor completely demolished, the former Camberwell Town Hall:
