Spring is sprung…kinda

The thing is, it’s cold.  Bloody cold.  You can’t leave a steaming, balmy Cape Town and head straight into skin shrinking London.  But I have hope.  Spring is lurking.  And London in the spring is great.  The evenings lengthen.   The cold recedes…a bit.  And tiny buds appear all over the place.

It might seem like it’s still winter…

a typical London garden

but a closer look sees crocuses, daffodils and snowdrops popping up all over the place


see see?  There!  In the corner!

Even the trees are starting to bud.  Promise.  Look closely..

buds against the grey

Give grey old London a couple of weeks, and she’ll be glorious.

    Don’t get your hopes up too much. London is London when it comes to weather. Spring/Summer/ Autumn all blur into each other.

    You forgot to mention that the rain stops. For an afternoon at least :mrgreen: Hope it turns lovelier, and sooner than you imagine …
