Richard Bell’s nature diary, London, Thursday, 6th August 2009, page 1 of 3

Potted weeping fig at the publishers.
IT MUST be 20 years since I visited a publisher in London. Today’s visit gives me
an excuse to hike back to Kings Cross station through the London parks. I even get
to call in briefly at the most famous address in literature; 221B Baker Street.
I pause for a cup of tea at the café overlooking the lake in Regents Park but by
the time I reach the zoo it’s starting to rain, or I would have paused again to draw
the bactrian camel.
