Greetings from a fairly sunny and spring like london!
The burning question that everyone is scared to ask is: has spring sprung? Winter was so long that any amount of sunlight still sends shockwaves to my body. I was looking through my blog posts of last april as i remembered blogging about early flowering trees. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about this april.
Yesterday the sun graced us with its presence and as i was due to meet up with the lovely yvonne from yvestown, what better place to show off our city than a short stroll in kensington gardens, followed by afternoon tea at the stunning orangery?
This map shows you the vastness of green space around the area, from kensington gardens to hyde park.
In all royal parks cycling is not permitted. Sadly, i saw plenty today while strolling along! If caught, there is a penalty of £50.
Mostly bare trees did not reflect from the gorgeous sunshine and the warmth on my skin and face.
And then there were some flowers……
It was lovely to see dogs enjoying themselves.
…. and ducks walking about!
Swans were out in full force.
Hello mr. pigeon!
Bins were being emptied – in style!
Off we trotted to the orangery for a cuppa of posh tea. If you live in london or you’re visiting, do try it out. The grounds are beautiful, the house stunning, the interiors gorgeous and the afternoon tea a complete delight. Quintessentially british. You won’t be disappointed.
I’m praying that this weather will continue. It was great to spend a couple of hours in beautiful nature and spending time with the gorgeous yvonne.
I hope you guys have a lovely weekend and i look forward to seeing you on monday:-)
