Poppy

There is an enormous poppy at King's Cross on the new concourse at the moment.

Had my midyear appraisal this morning, all good. Then I had barely enough time to rush out and meet Sofia and Juha for lunch. We tried the Sanctuary but they didn't really have enough gluten-free options so we wandered off to Leon which offered plenty. Had a rather tasty halloumi wrap and lemonade.

Had to leave them wandering off in search of Big Ben after that and go to back to work, but we met up again along with Dave at Oliver's fish and chips restaurant in Haverstock Hill. Sofia had researched gluten-free fish and chip options online before arriving here.

It was quite tasty although the tea was definitely below par - you need a steaming hot mug of totally stewed tea for fish and chips rather than a polite Twinings teabag in a big white polite teapot. Never mind.

We then headed back to the tube station and were thinking of just going home, but Sofia mentioned she wanted to go and visit platform 9 and 3/4 at King's Cross, so as it wasn't much of a detour, we found ourselves on the shiny new concourse. Sofia got very excited in Hotel Chocolat and ended up buying a lot of chocolate - then she did the obligatory trying to push the luggage trolley through the wall while we took pics. Fun.

Lovely shot Isla........great place Kings Cross & a perfectly placed poppy. Sorry I seem to have neglected your shots lately......haven't had a lot of time & I think you post quite late sometimes & by morning they are way down the list.. Lost track but perhaps we can catch up on the meet up if all goes to plan!

Both the architecture and the color makes this a wonderful photo. Love the unexpected pops of red against the purple.
