It’s Springtime, Somewhere…

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!

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

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!!

  1. I second that, Britain really is a great place especially in the spring time. We’ve not had snow at all this year, and the winter has been so mild we’ve had flowers out pretty much since January!

    • Lucky you! I’m quite envious, really wish I were back in England again. Most people I know go to Florida or Mexico during wintertime, but I’d much prefer the UK!! And I almost forget what flowers look like… I hope our weather will go England’s way before too long! Thanks for the comment.
