In tandem with Queen Elizabeth II's happy and glorious Diamond Jubilee, English Heritage have sponsored the production of a booklet which links this weekend's diamond jubilee with Queen Victoria's. David Lambert's booklet focuses on public parks. It can be viewed as a pdf document. Just click on the front cover image below:-
It will seem funny celebrating Her Majesty's remarkable milestone here on my own in Blogland. I mean, you can hardly have a street party with just one participant but I shall certainly raise a glass to Elizabeth - a constant star in changing times. Politicians, fashions, inventions, wars, celebrities - they have all come and gone but Elizabeth has endured - serene, dutiful and wise for sixty years. She's more than a face on a postage stamp and we will miss her when she's gone. God Save The Queen!
