photo Friday - spring has blossomed in Hyde Park

Friday, March 14, 2014

London has been very generous over the last two weeks and treated us to lots of lovely sunny days. For anyone who’s never visited this awesome city it’s worth pointing out that we don’t get that much sunshine in general. Most mornings and days the outlook is pretty grey.

But – on those days when the sun does make an appearance ‘us Londoner’s’ really make the most of it! Summer dresses come out (even if the temperature is still only about 15 degrees Celsius), convertibles appear in the streets (tops down), and people tend to shed most their clothes in the city’s parks (yes swim suits are acceptable wear) to try and lap up some of the rays they’ve been craving for months.

Spring in Hyde Park, London

Last Sunday was no exception – it was a gorgeous sunny day and the whole of London was determined to enjoy it. I spent most of my day relaxing in Hyde Park, my home away from home, and taking pics of the beautiful spring flowers that are in full bloom.

Captured here is a plot of gorgeous daffodils. Amazing!

Happy Friday everyone.

  1. I LOVE the daffodils sprouting up all over the place! They are so pretty. I have one tattooed on my wrist so I am a bit of a fan

    1. Wow, what a sweet sounding tattoo. This must be your favourite time of year I'm guessing! If you haven't seen this patch it's half way between Hyde Park Corner and Marble Arch :)

  2. Oh my gosh... the daffodils! I think they may be one of my favorite flowers! There weren't many where we lived for the last 5 years, and this is the first Spring we've been back "home" and they're everywhere!

  3. 15 degree sounds like a heatwave for us over here. I am hoping some of that beautiful sun makes it over our way! Enjoy, looks like spring has arrived in London.
