The unfortunate souls of southern Ontario, of which I am one, are currently enjoying their third bout of winter in about two months; and by “enjoying” of course I mean “suffering”. Unless one lives in Antarctica, I don’t believe one should have to contend with snowstorms, ice on windscreens, and slippery roads in April. And yet here we are! A couple weeks ago spring seemed to be here, but that was short-lived and now it’s depressingly cold and white again. I’ll have to content myself with thoughts of springtime in England– a year ago I was there, but how very far away it seems now! I hope you enjoy this collection of photos from that lovely springtime holiday. I don’t know when spring is coming, but I am sure that it’s getting closer every day!
Lush green grass outside the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich
St. James’s Park looks beautiful in the springtime, with crops of daffodils alongside the water and all kinds of geese and ducks wandering around
Flowers like these never die, regardless of the season
A stately home is made even more lovely with roses out front
Plants thrive in the leafy environs of Highgate Cemetery
Tulips and crocuses (I think) are a classic springtime mix at the Geffrye Museum
Kensington Palace has breathtaking grounds which can be enjoyed by everyone. England is such a marvellous place!!
