The new nature reserve in N17 is a great place for sketching. This island in the reservoir – a heronry – was eye-catching.

Mophead and lace-cap hydrangeas can change colour according to the soil they’re in and how they are watered. This one started out as blue but there’s so little rain about at present that it’s now in the pink.
