Just around the corner from where we live, is a little wooded common area where people go to walk their dogs, do their yoga or sometimes get up to no good. In the winter, it remains a desolate, cold and horrible place but in the summer, it becomes a lush green haven. But by far, my favourite aspect of this park is the surrounding houses. It’s certainly not the wealthiest area in London, but the residents are obviously very house proud. Each garden is immaculate, gates and fencing have been meticulously painted and you can be sure that on a summer’s day, everyone is out in their gardens having a barbeque or playing cricket on the common.
