London photos: Fassett Square

fassettsquare1

This past weekend in London was Open Garden Squares Weekend, during which many gardens and squares that are normally closed to the public open up and allow a good snoop around.

Fassett Square, in Hackney, is a pretty little square famous as the inspiration for Albert Square, where the soap EastEnders is set. (The show is not shot here, however.)

    All these pictures are lovely. Early summer and the long days around the solstice are perfect for hanging about in gardens.

  • It’s insane how long the days are this time of year here. Sun’s up by 5am and it’s still not fully dark at 9:30pm. (London gets a full extra hour of sunlight over NYC in summer.)

    I know!! It is even a longer twilight in Scotland. I remember being there during one really warm June and sitting about until past 10 at night in this golden haze day after day.
