No matter how much I adore living in the city, sometimes I am craving a little peace and quiet with little more to listen to than the wind rustling through the trees. When bright lights and big smoke get a bit too much altogether, there is one little garden square I regularly seek out to have a seat on a bench and let my mind wander.
Lonsdale Square is only a few steps away from the hustle and bustle of Upper Street. But yet it feels like a world away.
It’s dog free (sorry, not too keen on scraping off pooh from the pushchair’s wheels), and the flowerbeds accommodate blossoming roses up until October.
There are only three small gates to access the garden square. Once they are shut, little L can have a little wander-around all on her own, whilst I just sit and stare. Blissful!
