Our second attempt at photographing this house, no better than the first. We are always there on very sunny days and either get glare or excessive contrasts. The tree which is (2013) taller than the house is the one with the plaque at its foot, saying it was planted in 1973. Do trees really grow that fast? We would have guessed it was much older.
The garden was created initially on a bomb site by the Greenwich Society.
