Pretty as a Picture

Today, I take one of my occasional forays outside London, to the sort of places Londoners go when they can. This scene is from Flatford Mill Near Manningtree in Essex, where John Constable lived and painted in the 18th Century. This scene is still recogisable as the one in The Haywain. Many of Constable's paintings hang in the National Gallery and the Tate Britain, both worth visiting.

It looks so serene Ham, lovely soft reflections in the water. I can imagine this would be really nice place to escape to out of the city.

Did you go to the cafe there with the tame sparrows that eat out of your hand??
