In 2013 the winter seemed to go on forever and it was chilly through much of March but April saw the blossom come out at last. The Brits are famous for being obsessed by the weather and this blog seems to be confirming that!
Spring is a fabulous time in London and I’d like to share some photos taken during April so you can enjoy it too.
Brits are always out, sitting or laying in a park at the slightest hint of sunshine:
Outdoor yoga – seems a bit public to me but they look like they are completely in to it:
My neighbour’s front garden is always a delight:
And this is just around the corner from me, pink magnolia trees in Notting Hill and a small garden, squeezing some daffs into a corner:
Camden Market and Camden Lock are great places to hang out and shop on a sunny day:
You can’t beat the Thames on a fine spring day, looking towards the east, on a boat or near the London Eye:
Even an April shower brings its own reward – a rainbow right over London:
Another famous sight that shines in the sun is Westminster Abbey. The red buses were on hire for a wedding so we wondered if someone was getting married inside this great building – it’s not just for Wills and Kate!
Piccadilly Circus is a famous meeting and hanging out spot – never more than on a sunny day:
Primrose Hill offers fabulous views over London (how many landmark buildings can you name?) and you can hang out on the grass all day relaxing. The nearby streets have beautiful blossom:
Regent’s Park is home to an open air theatre that starts in mid May but before then you have the gracious gardens, good for strolling or playing in the fountains:
It’s another lovely day today, so I must head out to enjoy it!
Bye for now.
