Not so long ago when my grandchildren were eating in the central part of the city, these two pigeons were watching with beady eyes for any scraps. We don't often feed them because they can become a nuisance but as there are cafes about I expect that they do make quite a few meals out of left overs.
They look as though they might well be thinking of settling down in that hanging basket.
Speaking of settling down, I'm sure everyone knows it was the Royal Wedding today and I was not going to be watching it intently. I just wanted to see Kate's dress and see the actual church ceremony.
However, once I started to watch I was infected by the patriotism and felt I really wanted to see all of it.
There are times when I am hugely proud to be English and I think that todays Royal event really was an asset to the country.
In these times of unrest, financial hardship and wars and uprisings springing up all over the place, it makes a really wonderful change to share in someone else's happiness and to see the way the crowds in London responded to it. William and Kate who are now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, really did look very genuinely happy and I am sure they stand a very good chance of making a go of their marriage and judging by the looks of pleasure on the cheering faces of the crowds, it seems to be the general feeling.
I am sure that I am not alone in wishing them a happy future together.
