Spring into London

ST. JAMES’S PARK, LONDON – With some warmer temperatures in London, the neighbours and I headed out to St. James’s Park to stroll around and spot the blossoms and daffodils, gaze at the ducks and just relax as we people watched.

Sundays with daffodils

LONDON - It’s starting to get lighter earlier. When I leave the office, the sun is still out.  Before I used to go to work in the dark and come home in the dark. But now that the sun is setting later, it gives me hope that Summer is going to be here soon. I always say January is the worst month in London and once that’s over, the best is to come. Still to brighten up things, I bought some daffodils. Just 80 p from my local. Soon they’ll be appearing in the parks  too along with the pretty little crocuses.

It’s Spring time in London…well almost

LONDON – I met up with a friend after work today and we walked through St. James’s Park, spurred on by the late setting sun and warmer temperature. It’s a fantastic outdoor public space that offers you some room to get close to nature in the middle of the city.

If you meander through the park at this time of year, you’ll pass a host of daffodils that remind you that Easter is just around the corner, as is Spring.

We smiled as we spotted some swans, squirrels, ducks and geese too.  And as you pass through, you’ll notice that St. James’s park buttresses Buckingham Palace and you can get some nice shots from the bridge. Or you can turn the other way and get a photo of this:

As soon as it gets warmer, I’m going to rent one of these and just kick back.

Do you wish you could be here in London too?
