WalkingSquares: ashtray plant

Ashtrayus Disgusticus found on Seething Lane
Another image from our London wanderings in search of Samuel Pepys. I love the humour used to make a serious point on this notice in Seething Lane Garden. I also love the names of the old streets in the City of London, about many of which we commented that Pepys would know the name but not recognise any of the buildings. Not this one – he is buried in the church he attended, St Olave’s, just along from here.

Linked to Becky’s WalkingSquares.


  1. Hi Anabel -what a clever square to find! Great idea … I do hope they empty it regularly, though at least the butts aren’t on the ground. Seething Lane – a threshing path … I love our names and their etymology … cheers Hilary


I'd love to hear what you think!
