View from Hyde Park
On many occasions I like to have walks around the vicinity where I live. The local park is a reflection of the four seasons. At present there is an autumn feel around where leaves are still falling and there is a blanket effect of yellow, gold and brown around. At other times of the year – winter, spring and summer have their own peculiar aspects to it. For instance, we are coming up to winter where the bareness of the trees are reflected in the hibernation of park animals like the birds and squirrels – not much activity. In spring, the buds blossom and there is a fresh feel in the park. Finally, the summer glory of the leaves on the trees, the many colours of the blossomed plants has nice feel about it as I continue my walk in the park.
