Cycling again

Not in the Velodrome itself, that would be an entirely different kettle of fish. Still getting my confidence up in a traffic-free zone. Going round the Olympic Park, it's wonderful to see how the floral landscape has changed between sessions. Two weeks ago, the gladioli weren't even in bud and now their brief span is almost done. And lilies (are they lilies?) have appeared on the other side of the grass swathe.
 Off the main paths are hidden nooks -
 Most of the dense planting is near the water-fountain area; love those cone flowers -
"The monstrosity" keeps an eye on it all -

How fantastic! You bring back such happy memories for us. We were lucky enough to win tickets for the Olympics on Golden Saturday - a totally unforgettable experience and so enhanced by the beautiful drifts of flowers and the art works spread around the park. We must go back ...
